Volume 1 of 3. Volume 1 contains Eclectic Spelling Book; Eclectic Primer; First Eclectic Reader; Second Eclectic Reader; and Third Eclectic Reader. This series is the basis for how Americans learned to read and write. The arranging of the lessons is to appeal not just to arbitrary memory, but to associate each lesson with some principle of sound, meaning or accent, which will lead the student in acquiring a knowledge of the English language. Fabulous books for children, and adults alike, learning to read and write.
