Originally published in 1788, this book is considered the second largest selling book of all time after the Bible. Bound in a distinctive blue cover, it earned the nickname "the blue-backed speller". Used by American children as the standard text over the span of nearly a century, this facsimile reproduction of the 1827 edition, complete with traditional blue binding, recaptures school days gone by.
