Poison Drops in the Federal Senate: The School Question from a Parental and Non-Sectarian Standpoint
Zach[ariah] Montgomery (Washington, DC: Gibson Bros., 1st ed. 1886) (photographic reprint said to be available from Amazon Books). Perhaps the earliest book-length work in the English language setting out the rationale for homeschooling rather than classroom schooling --although there is the epic poem by William Cowper (1731-1800), "Tirocinium: Or, a Review of Schools" (which was never published as a monograph, but only in collections) to consider in this regard.

A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another: and as the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the predominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, a priesthood, an aristocracy, or the majority of the existing generation in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body.
John Stuart Mill On Liberty (1859)
