Schoolbooks were not provided by the schools when this book was printed in 1817. Parents had to purchase books for their children from a list of books approved by their local District School Committee. Because the books were expensive, they were often passed down through the family. Schoolbooks were profitable for printers in New England and New York; the northeast took the lead in the public education movements of the early Republic.
