English Grammar Adapted to the Different Classes of Learners.
Wilson, Spence & Mawman
An American Quaker lawyer, Murray (1745–1826) moved to York, England, in 1784—perhaps after his family was caught trading with the British after the Revolution. In retirement there, he wrote two books on religion and then, six months after contracting to sell his New York real estate to Noah Webster, this historic grammar. With it, he became one of the best-selling authors of the 19th century—and the foe of Noah Webster.
