English Grammar, Adapted to the Different
Classes of Learners Best known for his English Grammar, Adapted to the Different Classes of Learners (1795) , Lindley Murray (1745-1826) published during the second half of his lifetime numerous other educational works, many of which were equally successful in their day as the Grammar and its spin-offs. The Grammar itself is mentioned by numerous English and American authors, from Mrs Gaskell and George Eliot to Edgar Allen Poe and Harriet Beecher Stowe. Charlotte Bronte learned her own English Grammar from the 30th edition (1818) of Murray's. In this new collection, Murray's textbooks are made available in reprints of representative editions of the day, the form in which they would have been known to generations of school children and adults alike. Included also is the unique study of Murray's life and work, Lindley Murray - Grammarian (1953) by Colin Eaton West, here updated with new notes by David A Reibel. For the first time the works of one of the most successful educational writers have been assembled in one collection.
