Most widely held works by Robert Lowth
A short introduction to English grammar, 1762 by Robert Lowth( Book )

446 editions published between 1762 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Lowth's book on grammar is one of the most famous examples of 18th-century prescriptivism. Lowth was one of the first people to publish writing on what is correct and incorrect in English grammar. Its ample use of footnotes provides useful information as to why the right answer is right and why the wrong answer is wrong. His book was popular with self-taught scholars, who found his writing style to be clear and easy to understand. This text was referenced for centuries after its initial publication

Longinus On the sublime by Longinus( Book )

5 editions published between 1906 and 1961 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the 1907 second edition of W. Rhys Roberts' Longinus on the Sublime. The volume contains the Greek text edited after the Paris manuscript, an extensive introduction, and a thorough and accessible translation of the main text. Roberts' introduction is divided into two parts: the authorship of the Treatise, and its content and character. Roberts is careful to place On the Sublime in its critical context, challenging both the inscription and description of this classical text. The author is thought to be an unknown teacher, and not the historical Longinus, whilst the 'sublime' in this instance is not 'the sublime' as we would commonly understand it. On the Sublime is a text which dissects the problems of literary criticism and the aesthetics of Greek literature. The lively and intelligent style of the text will ensure that Roberts' edition is enjoyed by Greek scholars and general readers alike
