Note
  • Includes hymns by Isaac Watts, verses, and the Westminster Assembly's Shorter catechism
  • Ascribed to the press of Samuel Kneeland and Timothy Green on the strength of the cuts and printers' ornaments used. The cut of John Rogers (p. [24]) appears elsewhere only in Kneeland and Green's 1735 primer; here, it is shortened at the top. Kneeland employed several of the ornaments which appear here: on the title page, round-leaf rosettes (from 1741-1749); on the last page, square-leaf rosettes with solid centers (1741-1752) and with open centers (1729-1739); on p. [33], tulip-shaped ornaments (1742-1749)
  • Probably printed ca. 1750 but in no event printed before 1745. Page [16] contains "The late Reverend and venerable Mr. Nathaniel Clap, of Newport, on Rhode-Island, his advice to children." Clap died in 1745. The partnership to Kneeland and Green ended in 1752 with Timothy Green's removal to New London; if printed after that date, this was probably printed by Samuel Kneeland at Boston
  • Not in Evans or Bristol
