BROWN'S ENGLISH GRAMMARS.
REVISED EDITIONS BY
HENRY KIDDLE, A.M.,
Superintendent of Schools of New York City.
Brown's First Lines of English Grammar $0.45.
The excellence of Brown's Grammars is very generally admitted, and notwithstanding the multitude of School Grammars which have come in competition with them, they have steadily advanced in public favor. In perspicuous arrangement, accuracy of definition, fulness of illustration, and comprehensiveness of plan, they stand unrivalled, and are probably more extensively used throughout the United States than any other works on the subject.
Brown's Grammar of English Grammars, $6.23.
Over 1000 pp., royal 8vo.
The Grammar of English Grammars is an invaluable book of reference, and every scholar should have a copy in his library. No teacher can afford to be without it.
Brown's Grammar is unquestionably the Grammar of the English Language. In an experience of nearly thirty years in teaching, I have seen the fraternity annually encountering a food of new Grammars, intended to submerge · Brown. But the stout old teacher refuses to be submerged ; his solid masonry resists the flood—which latter is itself an incontestible proof that a better Grammar than Brown's has not been found."—BENJAMIN MASON, Yonkers Military Academy.
Friends' ELEMENTARY AND High School, BALTIMORE, MD., 5th mo. 12, 1873. I am still using Brown's Grammars in this institution, preferring them to others because they are at once comprehensive and methodical. Beginning with an explanation of what grammar is, and the parts into which it is divided, it takes up each part in detail, places the great principles of the language before the eye of the learner, and impresses them upon his mind by definitions and rules so perspicuous, so simple, yet so comprehensive, that he cannot fail to understand them.
Definitions are illustrated by examples; rules are followed by practical exercises both in parsing and false syntax. Parsing commences with etymology, and thus the student not only learns what each part of speech is, but its relation to other words in the sentence. Going on by constant repetitions and easy gradations, he becomes thoroughly acquainted with the whole subject.
Prosody is treated in a manner as thorough and methodical. The examples are so well chosen, the exercises for practice so numerous, that with the aid and direction of a competent teacher the student can gain so full a knowledge of versification, and the right use of figurative language, as almost to preclude the necessity for studying that branch of rhetoric.
