The NEW ENGLAND PRIMER Improved 1791 - David Niven, Glasgow

Original 1791 NEW ENGLAND PRIMER, IMPROVED, printed by David Niven, Glasgow. Back cover mostly missing, otherwise Good/Very Good, supple. 3 1/4" x 3 7/8". Age toning, as seen, general wear around the edges.

The New England Primer was the first reading primer designed for the American Colonies. It became the most successful educational textbook published in 18th century America and it became the foundation of most schooling before the 1790s.

I found no copies for sale on the internet. A rare piece of Americana.
