Title: Esperanto
Subtitle: The Student's Complete Text Book. Containing Full Grammar, Exercises, Conversations, Commercial Letters, and Two Vocabularies
Written By: J. C. O'Connor
Series Title: LINCOM Tutoria 04

This Grammar of the Auxiliary International Language, "Esperanto" - the
first published in England - was personally revised by and received the
official approval of its inventor, Dr. Zamenhof.

Thus it was prepared to supply a want is not a mere fa├žon de parler. For
months before this issue of the first edition in 1903 hundreds of inquirers
had written urgently requesting a grammar suitable for English students. In
compiling a book to meet this demand my chief desire and aim has been to
prepare a Grammar, which, while being a complete in all its parts and
containing everything that is necessary for a sound knowledge of the
language, should be brief, clear, full, but not redundant (from the preface
of the 1913 edition).

Contents: The Making of an International Language by Dr. Zamenhof. Synopsis
of the Grammar of Esperanto: Part I: The Grammar (list of correlative
words, how to build up new words). Part II: Exercises on the Grammar. Part
III: Conversations. Part IV: Letters, commercial, ideomatic phrases, etc.
Part V: Vocabularies (English - Esperanto, Esperanto-English). Appendix
(names of countries, foods, etc.).
