Description

First published in 1940, this book was designed by Eric Partridge to equip students, studying for final exams at school, with the tools they needed to become successful précis-ers. The selection of literary pieces is more diverse than other preìcis books of the time and Partridge’s background as a schoolmaster, a lecturer and a publisher sets him up well to teach the subject.
