1856 printing of this work copyrighted in 1856. The author is credited as having a Master of Arts degree. A sequel to Barton's New System of English Grammar, Practical Exercises is directed toward primary school students for the acquisition of English grammar. The book founds itself upon imitation and exercises in order to progress students from basic understanding of grammar to its more substantial application in composition scenarios and the critical study of English Literature. It also includes review questions. The contents covers punctuation, sentence structure, style (purity, propriety, precision), structure and style, figurative language, and modes of composition (narratives, descriptions, epistles, essay, arguments). The appendixes includes information on writing for publication and proofreading. The Schultz Archive includes the entire text, and it is in good condition (the cover page is somewhat sideways).
