DR REID'S EDUCATIONAL WORKS.
RUDIMENTS OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR.
18mo, price 6d. cloth. 18th Edition.
The Rudiments of English Grammar are designed for the use of Elementary Classes.

RUDIMENTS OF ENGLISH COMPOSITION.
Fcap 8vo, 134 pages, price 2s. bound. 14th Edition. Key to Ditto, Fcap 8vo, 3s. 6d. bound. Bound together, 5s. 6d.
The Rudiments of English Composition are intended as a sequel to the ordinary text-books on Grammar. The Work, it is hoped, will be found useful in teaching such as are their own instructors, or have time only for a school education, to express their ideas with sufficient perspicuity and taste for their purposes in life; while to those who are to make higher attainments in learning, it will serve as a practical initiation into the critical study of the English language and literature. The volume is divided into three parts: Part I. is meant to guide to correctness in spelling, punctuation, the use of words, and the structure and arrangement of sentences; Part II. to correctness and perspicuity in style, and to a tasteful use of ornament in writing; and Part III. to the practice of the preceding rules and exercises in various kinds of original composition. The Key is designed solely for the convenience of teachers.
