A plain and comprehensive grammar of the English language
printed for W. Young, Philadelphia 1789 - 18mo, pp. 4, [9]-220pp., contemporary sheep, neatly rebacked with old spine laid down; good and sound. An uncommon derivitive of Webster's first revision of his Grammar. The advertisement leaf, unsigned and undated, states that "some alteration has been made in the manner of exhibiting the modes and tenses of verbs. These, together with a few verbal alterations. are liberties, which, in the absence of Mr. Webster, were hazarded by the editor." Pages 132-168 contain "An Essay on Punctuation, Lately Published in London," based on that of Joseph Robertson, first pubklished in 1785. While advertised as a "new feature," this essay in fact appeared in the basic grammar of 1787 (Skeel 409). Skeel 444 locates 6 copies (1 defective); OCLC adds 4 more; Evans 22260 (incorrect title); Alston I, 388.
