It's a fairly interesting book. It gives one a good overview of how early conlanging looked especially in terms of philosophical and auxlang style constructions. Though some of the concepts detailed within use certain language construction concepts considered in bad form by today's conlangers it is generally a good reference for conlang design. Be forewarned that some spellings are odd but this is a common phenomena in older texts.
