Author: Calverley, Francis.
Title: The biggest idol in the world knock'd i'th' head.: The verb's triumph: or, The second part of Calverley's notes. : Which notes rightly distinguish the hitherto horribly misdistinguished grounds of speech; and proveth the rules of the common grammar so false and ridiculous, that it's dishonour for any learned nation to teach or account them for rules: therefore all grammarians and lovers of true distinction are desired to stand up quickly in vindication of the common grammar, or else to procure a grammar sensible, brief and pleasant, lest (by our slighting of this method) other lands entertain it first, and we (for our ingratitude) be forced to learn it of them, to our grief and shame.
