THE LARGER CATECHISM AGREED UPON BY THE ASSEMBLY OF DIVINES AT WESTMINSTER..., [Early American Imprint; Printing History; Stereotype]; Assembly of Devines at Westminster; M'Leod, Alexander
2 [Early American Imprint; Printing History; Stereotype]; Assembly of Devines at Westminster; M'Leod, Alexander THE LARGER CATECHISM AGREED UPON BY THE ASSEMBLY OF DIVINES AT WESTMINSTER...
New York Stereotyped and Printed by J. Watts & Co. for Whiting & Watson, Theological and Classical Booksellers June, 1813 First Edition 
12mo (4¼" X 7¼"). pp. 142. FIRST BOOK STEREOTYPED IN AMERICA. Contemporary speckled sheep with black morocco spine label and 5 sets of double rules dividing the spine into six compartments. The title page of this extremely scarce theological work states: “The first book ever stereotyped in America.” This statement is correct, in that this is the first book printed from stereotype plates made in the United States. In 1812, the Philadelphia Bible Society had already published a stereotype Bible printed from imported plates. (See Silver, p.60).

Contemporary inscription of the front fly-leaf: "Garrarding Northrop's Property Brookfield March 19th 1827"; book plate of M. S. Carothers on front paste down. Leather split along the front hinge, bottom edges of spine chipped away, leather at corners rubbed through, moderate to heavy foxing throughout. Rollo Silver, Typefounding in America (1965), page 60; Sabin 39032; Shaw & Shoemaker 30520.
