High School Grammar: or, an exposition of the grammatical structure of the English language Open Access Deposited
The printing of the second thousand of the text, dated 1862. The copyright was registered in 1859. William S. Barton is credited as the author of other grammar books and has a Master of Arts degree. Building on the author's previous work Intermediate Grammar, the work is meant for high school students and high school teachers, but also for college work and general reference. It draws specifically on english philology. The preface gives credit to Wallis, Harris, Lowth, Greenwood (as older grammarians) and Murray, Crombie, Latham, Webster, Brown (as modern), and Bopp, Becker, Kuhner and Andrews and Stoddard for contributions to the philosophy and method of language. The Schultz Archive's excerpt only covers roughly the first 59 pages, including preface, basic orthography, and nouns. It does, however, also include two appendixes and the index, which lays out the contents of this 373 page text. The scans are very good quality.
