A Treatise of English Particles

WALKER, William

Regular price $300.00 Sale

Title continues: "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. With a Praxis upon the same." William Walker's treatise, originally published 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, apparently quite uninterested in grammar, whatever "Propriety and Elegancy" it displayed.
