This unique “grammatical map,” according to its author, which was intended to be posted on a wall, was “designed exclusively for the use of families and for private learners,” and displays all parts of grammar–etymology, articles, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, syntax, false grammar, specimens of parsing, etc.

Jeremiah Greenleaf (1791-1864) is a little-known but highly admired American cartographer who flourished between 1830 and 1850. In addition to the present item, we have copies of the 1840 and 1843 editions of his most important work, A New Universal Atlas, as well as editions of his Grammar Simplified (1826, 1839, and 1851) and his Self-taught Grammarian (1829).
