Grammar book from the John Wilson Korns house

Korns divider line

The 2001 scans below are from an 1866 book titled "First Lessons in English Grammar" that Allen Korns's daughter Estalene Dietle (my mother) owned. She would have from the Southampton Township, Somerset County PA family residence of Allen Korns, which had previously been owned by Allen's father John Wilson Korns, and grandfather Daniel Korns, Jr. After the contents of the house were sold at auction in the 1970s, Estalene took the old books home that didn't sell.
