1883 printing of 1883 copyrighted text. The author is credited as Teacher of Language and Literature in the Hoboken (N.J.) Academy. Text in response to criticism of language study in schools, and based on the idea that to obtain a practical knowledge of English one need only study the best, most idiomatic English writers, such as William Corbett. Text is an account of Corbett's life with one of his best productions, Corbett's English Grammar. The work aims to show what Corbett was as a man and a writer, to show how a writer acquired his power of expression. The Schultz Archive copy contains the editor's preface, the author's preface, a page of the TOC, and pages 218 – 223, on how Corbett taught grammar.
