Originally published in 1884, this book is intended to provide the student with a series of text in the classical West-Saxon dialect of Old English, with such helps in the way of Grammar, Glossary, and, Notes, as shall enable him to acquire a sound elementary knowledge of the language, without, at the same time, neglecting the literature. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
