When first published in 1801, this work quickly gained the widest circulation of any arithmetic book to date. An unusual feature of this work was that space was left blank between the problems for their solution. In a sense this was a combination textbook and workbook. Daniel Adams (1773-1864) went on to write a number of other successful arithmetics. AMERICAN INVENTORY #23414.
