Synopsis

A Book of English Prose, Part 1 Arranged for Preparatory and Elementary Schools by Percy Lubbock

Originally published in 1913, this book of English prose for school children forms part of a two-volume series: the first volume contains selections for preparatory and elementary schools; the second volume contains selections for secondary and high schools. Both texts cover a broad variety of literary styles, moving chronologically from the late-medieval period through to the nineteenth century, explanatory notes being provided where necessary. The selections were arranged by Percy Lubbock (1879-1965), a renowned essayist, critic and biographer, who became Henry James's editor after his death.
