The Protestant school: or, A method, containing several forms of prayer, Psalms, lessons, thanksgivings, and graces, for the bringing up, and well grounding children and elder persons in the Protestant religion :
by the most reverend and learned Bishop Usher: also a catalogue of all the English words, beginning with one syllable, and proceeding by degrees to eight, divided and not divided; the readiest way for teaching children and elder persons to spell, pronounce, read and write true English. To which is added, an historical account of several plots and remarkable passages, from Queen Elizabeth to this present time, lively represented in copper plates; with an explanation to every figure, with copies of several hands which are used in England, and many other things which are useful for so necessary a work. Fitted to the common use of all English schools; having a thousand words more than any yet extant. By Moses Lane, schoolmaster in London.
