Critical Criticisms of Critics on Drury's Comical French Grammar
London: George Rivers, .
Softcover. Near fine. Four-page pamphlet (single sheet, folded), 4.25 x 6.75 inches, printed in blue on cream stock. One tiny nick on first page, else fine. After explanatory remarks, Drury reprints excerpts of (mostly critical) reviews of his book, "Drury's Comical French Grammar; or French, in an Amusing Point of View," published by George Rivers in 1878. He comments in part that "he thanks his numerous critics for their genuine criticisms which, after all, are really amusing and contradictory, because each editor has taken his sight from a different 'point of view,' whilst the author compiled it with a view to amusement and instruction combined (had it been entirely Comic it could scarcely have been useful); thus he trusts the public will partake freely of either the amusement or instruction in his Comical Grammar, as may seem most adapted to their tastes, and which they can do through any bookseller."
