Prospectus for Ligon's Arithmetic Improved; or, A Summary System of Common and Decimal Arithmetic, Collaterally and Concisely Combined in Every Rule, with a solicitation for subscribers for its publication; that text was published in Richmond in 1810 (1810.027). One of two variants of Ligon's solicitation; the other (1808.047) has a slightly different text. Sheet lacks colophon; as Ligon entered a copy right for this work at the federal district court in Richmond in August 1808, and the actual textbook issued from a Richmond press, this title is presumed to have been printed there as well, though the issuing press remains uncertain.
