This scarce book is the result of long experience in the class-room and of no little reading and study. The English language and its literature have been for many years the main subject of the author’s inquiry, and he has endeavoured in this volume to give the results of his observations in the form which his experience as a t teacher has convinced him to be best adapted to the wants of the learner. Written to give some knowledge of grammar in general and set forth the forms and laws peculiar to the English language, this text is perfect for the aspiring student and constitutes a great addition to any collection of linguistic literature. Chapters included herein are: Etymology, Articles, Nouns, Adjectives, Pronouns, Verbs, Conjunctions, and Prepositions, et cetera. This rare book was originally published in 1875 and is proudly republished here complete with a new introduction to the subject.
