Even though this textbook on arithmetic was written during the late 19th century, I have to say the presentation is superior than what can be found today. The lessons are given in a logical manner taking baby steps to teach the basics of math. Also, the entire book has been generously digitized by Google so there's no need to make a purchase. Just print what you may need.
