Noah Webster The Schoomaster of Our Republic
Keywords:Books, History, Noah Webster
AbstractRutgers University Library has recently acquired "A Collection of Essays and Fugitive Writings on Moral, Historical, Political and Literary Subjects" to add to its group of writings by Noah Webster. The volume is especially valuable and interesting because it was Webster's personal copy. All of the essays in this collection were written before Webster was thirty years of age and were published in June 1790. In 1838, approximately fifty years after most of the essays were written, Webster carefully read the volume, marking passages and making marginal notations, signing and dating many of his comments.
