New impression 1955
University of London Press Ltd.
This book is mentioned specifically in a
paper in English Language that we were set in Form 5, I believe by Mr Griffiths.
This suggests that we used it extensively in classes. The test paper has the following
Q2. “Precis the prose passage on pages
154 of ‘Black
and Lawley’ ”
and Lawley’ Comprehension. Answer a to f inclusive on page 109.”
Note from the
title page that one of the
authors, E. L. Black, was an Examiner in English Language (G.C.E. Ordinary Level)
for the Welsh Joint Education Committee.
