1898 copyrighted text. The second of a two-book course for students in seventh and eighth grade—see first part: Primary Grammar and Composition. The preface states the book aims to be concise, using brief and clear definitions, and to use ample illustrations of its principles from works by masters of English. Exercises are used for practice in parsing or for discussion. Part one is devoted to the treatment of the sentence as a whole; part two develops matters of etymology, as well as phrases and clauses; part three covers syntax as well as capitalization, punctuation, and rhetorical figures; part four cover prosody and kinds of composition. The Schultz Archive copy contains the preface, TOC, pages 260 – 301 (covering kinds of composition and the style and art of composition), and the topic index. The copies are of varying quality, some of which are difficult to read.
