From the Introduction, p. IV: "The second part of this Grammar being chiefly a treatise on the written style of the Chinese language, the author has endeavoured to analize, as much as possible, the sentences quoted from the Classics and other works, so as to guide the student in arranging his thoughts agreeable to Chinese notions".

From the library of Swedish antiquarian bookdealer Björn Löwendahl (1941-2013).
