Available for proofreading: History of Orrin Pierce

orrinOur latest proofreading project comes from the Sherman Thackara Collection: a Sunday School reader called History of Orrin Pierce, published in 1847 by the American Sunday-School Union (an organization which still exists today under the name InFaith).

The book tells the story of a young boy named Orrin Pierce, and being a Sunday School reader, it frequently uses the events of his life to teach religious lessons.  The volume contains many drawings, some of which have been hand-colored by a previous owner in our copy.

If you want to help preserve this vintage book in electronic format, you can join in at the project page. To learn more about the proofreading process, see this earlier post.  This is a short one, so join in now — it won’t be around for long!
