ADVERTISEMENT.

A GREAT number of the examples for correction, included in the following MANUAL under the heads of Syntax and Punctuation, will be already familiar to the experienced teacher. The materials elsewhere are original; but at the places referred to, I have mostly preferred old examples to such as I might have contrived or selected, because I hoped to show that materials already found practically useful, will be still more effective when placed for correction on what I deem to be the true basis of grammar. As to that basis, I must refer the inquirer to the theoretical investigations contained in the “ Principles of English Grammar;” and to the same principles still more widely traced in the “ Beginnings of a New School of Metaphysics.” I have to add, that a MANUAL OF RHETORIC, nearly ready for the press, and a MANUAL of Logic, already in a state of forwardness, are intended to follow the MANUAL OF GRAMMAR.–See “ Conclusion” to the Manual at page 191, immediately before the Key.
