Reading in the Graveyard

Reading in the Graveyard

Another proofreading project has reached completion: History of Orrin Pierce, a Sunday School reader from 1847. Filled with simple illustrations (some hand-colored by a former owner), the book tells of a life of religious devotion in simple language. While the brief narrative probably won’t do much to capture your imagination, it offers a glimpse of the sort of fiction that many parents encouraged their children to read in the 19th century.

The entire book can be read online at Project Gutenberg, where it may also be downloaded for offline reading in a variety of popular formats.
