The elementary spelling book... being an improvement on the American spelling book

New York: D. Appleton & Co., [ca. 1880]. Revised edition, 12mo, pp. 174; original blue printed paper-covered boards worn, one page marked, the rest clean and sound, Japanese ownership stamps on title page and lower pastedown, good. "The cheapest, the best, and the most extensively used spelling book ever published." This was not an exaggeration. Webster's spelling book went through dozens of editions, was produced in millions of copies and was exported to multiple countries. Japanese editions contemporary with this copy existed, but from the ownership marks it looks like in this case a Japanese student got their hands on an American edition. Item #67219
