Originally published in 1907, as the revised edition of an 1893 original, this informative and engaging textbook sets out to contain and explicate all of the elements of English grammar. Primarily aimed at secondary school students, this book condenses and synthesizes the most important information, recognising and demonstrating throughout 'how much the half is greater than the whole'. Notably, 'a good supply of sentences for correction has been added to the concluding chapters on syntax' and questions appear at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning. Most questions have been chosen from Cambridge and Oxford Local Examination Papers and papers from the Royal College of Preceptors. Chapters are broad in scope; chapter headings include, 'Inflexion of nouns', 'Auxiliary and defective verbs' and 'Syntax of verbs'. This book will be of considerable value to anyone with an interest in the history of the English language and the history of education.
