A short introduction to English grammar, 1762 by Robert Lowth( Book )

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
