New England Primer 1777 - Booklet

This booklet contains a reproduction of a 1777 verison of the first American schoolbook, The New England Primer. The New England Primer was first published in Boston in 1688. The content of the Primer is religious in nature, and thus it would be considerd by many readers today to be a prayer book rather than a textbook. However, it was a staple of primary education in America through the mid 19th Century.

The children's prayer, "Now I lay me down to sleep" first appeared in this Primer. Also included are stories, prayers, letter and word exercises, and woodcut prints to aid children in their education.
