PREFACE TO THE FIRST STEREOTYPE EDITION.

The sale of nearly a million copies of the American Preceptor, since its first publication, is the best proof of its popularity; and the continued demand for it, notwithstanding the numerous compilations of the same description, which have risen in competition with it, is no inconsiderable proof of its excellence.

A new edition is called for, and the proprietor has been at the trouble and expense of revising the whole book, adapting the orthography and pronunciation to Walker's rules, and, what is of no little consequence, fixing its correctness by beautifully stereotyping the work.

WM. B. FOWLE.

STEREOTYPED AT THE BOSTON TYPE AND STEREOTYPE FOUNDRY.
