1853 printing of the 1853 copyrighted text. The author is a reverend and credited with a Master of Arts degree and as the author of two other books on grammar. The book aims to avoid the pitfalls of offering too little assistance to students or providing too much, while preparing them to undertake the discussion of a subject in a methodological and logical manner. Its first part covers sentence making with sections on the parts of a sentence, kinds of sentences, analysis of sentences, and the synthesis and composing of fables. The second part covers variety of expression, looking at arrangement, structure, word choice, synonyms, and colloquial and narrative forms. Part three covers description and figurative language and has sections on description, narrative, biography, history, epistolary, figures of speech, theme outlines, essay outlines, and declamation and oration. The fourth party covers punctuation and versification. The Schultz Archive's copy is roughly the complete text.
