The English school-master. Teaching all his scholars, of what age soever, the most easy, short, and perfect order of distinct reading, and true writing our English-tongue, that hath ever yet been known or published by any. And further also, teacheth a direct course, how any unskilful [sic] person may easily both understand any hard English words, which they shall in scriptures, sermons, or else-where, hear or read; and also be made able to use the same aptly themselves; and generally whatsoever is necessary to be known for the English speech: so that he which hath this book only, needeth to buy no other to make him fit from his letters to the grammer-schooll, for an apprentice, or any other private use so far as concerneth English: and therefore it is made not only for children, though the first book be meer [sic] childish for them, but also for all other; especially for those that are ignorant in the Latin tongue. In the next page the schooll-master [sic] hangeth forth his table to the view of all beholders, setting forth some of the chief commodities of his profession. /
