Hoch-Deutsches Lutherisches A B C und Namen-Buchlein fur Kinder

Philadelphia: Printed by Conrad Zentler for George W. Mentz, 1810. [16] leaves, first and last pasted to boards. 12mo. Contemporary drab boards, crudely backed in leather. Spine ends and corners worn. Moderate soiling and wear, final leaf loosening. Good. Item #852

Rare German-American children's primer, illustrated with a page of alphabet woodcuts on the front pastedown. Three editions were published in 1810, in Germantown, Reading, and Philadelphia, and all survive in only two or three known copies -- not uncommon for books of this kind. OCLC locates a single copy of this Philadelphia edition, at the American Antiquarian Society.
