I have this series of tiny, old books called The Art of Writing & Speaking The English Language. When I say "old", I mean old. The copyright is from 1905. And tiny? I can grip the width of the cover with one hand.
The series includes Grammar, Composition, Story-Writing & Journalism, and – my favorite – Dictionary of Errors. For instance, the Dictionary of Errors tells me that "pants" is vulgar for "pantaloons" or "trousers". And that "anyhow" is also "a vulgarism never to be used." And, of course, that "lovely does not mean everything that an adjective can. Young ladies, especially, should give other words a chance."
