A Guide to English Composition.
London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1883. New edition. "the Publishers sincerely hope that this 'Guide' may be the means of supplying a lack which has been long felt by intelligent teachers, and of raising English composition in schools from the puerile repetition of a hackneyed fable, or the random 'common places' of a moral essay, into an art which has for its object the analysis, illustration, development, and expression, of solid thought." Pp.xvi/426/16(Lists of school books), inscribed to "C.H.J.Hayman, from his grandfather, the author" to front free endpaper, a few light spots, crease and chipped lower edge of pp.xv/xvi of contents pages. Dark green pebbled blind-stamped cloth, gilt title to spine. G+.
