HUTTON, Charles and Alexanger INGRAM.
A Complete Treatise on Practical Arithmetic and Book-Keeping, both by single and double entry, adapted to the use of schools. A new edition, corrected and enlarged by Alexander Ingram, Mathematician.
“New edition” of a work that was extremely popular in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, first published as “The school-master’s guide: or, a complete system of practical arithmetic”. The first two printings do not appear to have survived, the earliest edition in ESTC and ICAEW being the third of 1771.

Joints cracked, spine ends and corners worn. Some light toning and occasional foxing. Clean tear to one leaf, without loss of text; a good copy.
