Old but useful specially for me who English is the second language. I advise this book for those who are learning the English language. Especially the fist part that teach the right pronunciation of English words.
The best description I can come up with is this: it appears as though someone copied some of the text of this book and then pasted it, unformatted, in a text note! There's a copy of an original of this book on Google Books and THAT is worth reading--this cut-and-pasted text note with horrible if any formatting is unfit to sell as it is advertised--The Original Classic Edition, my foot!
Writing, talking, even at times, thinking requires knowledge of grammar. Because I write short stories that mandate control of grammar because of their compactness (much like poetry), i'm always on the hunt for grammar books that tell me the same sort of thing in a different way or new things entirely--helps refresh my understanding. So, I decided to turn to a very fine writer who lived 3 centuries before me to learn more about his view of writing rules. This book is a treasure that i shall keep on my Kindle so long as i have it.
Seriously, this book is timeless. It's a must-have for any Kindle. I have had a copy of this book around for many years, I have a printed copy also and I would not even consider any formal writing project without it by my side.
I love the free books for the Kindle. They greatly expand our homeschool reading beyond what we can find at our library as well as allow us to keep a copy as long as we need. It has also been fun comparing how language has been taught over time.
