A Treatise of English Particles, Shewing Much of the Variety of their Significations and uses in English: And how to render them into Latine according to the Propriety and Elegancy of that Language
London: George Pawlett, 1691. 461 p. + index and catalogue. Engraved frontispiece. Spine and covers scuffed. Many ink notes. William Walker's "Treatise of English Particles" originally published in 1655, lists a large number of "particles" of speech, arranged alphabetically. Especially interesting today, however, are the poignant signatures and scribblings of bored, long-ago schoolboys who were no doubt quite uninterested in grammar, whatever" Propriety and Elegancy" it displayed.. Tenth Edition. Full-Leather. Fair. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall.
