Introduction & Complete Grammar
by Ludovic Lazarus Zamenhof
Zamenhof launched his 'second language for everyone' in slim fourty-page booklets in five languages, Russian, Polish, French, German and English. Zamenhof not himself proficient in English had his brochure translated specially. Unfortunately it was a very bad translation and had to be quickly withdrawn. Fortunately a second version in English was translated from the Russian original by Richard H. Geoghegan and published in 1889. Authorised by Zamenhof this historic document is now available again in print and on the web.
