High School English Grammar & Composition by Wren and Martin is one of the foremost and popular books on English Grammar to be published in India. The book still finds a mention as one of the most popular books in the history of English Grammar.
High School English Grammar and Composition, written by P.C. Wren and H. Martin is a well known book that's been followed religiously by bibliophiles from around the world. This is just one among the many textbooks that were written by popular linguists Martin and Wren with the core content focusing on English grammar. The book was primarily penned down for the children of British officials during the British Raj in India.
They were immensely popular in Pakistani and Indian schools post the British era and even in missionary educational institutions in Burma. This series of books was published in the year 1935 with a composition that was added later. The material that can be found in these works is mostly based on the book The Manual of English Grammar and Composition by the renowned author J.C. Nestfield.
The other books in this series are A First Book of English Grammar and Composition, A Final Course of Grammar and Composition and Elementary English Grammar.

Ordered This Book Along With The "Key To Wren & Martin's High School English Grammar & Composition" on 25th Sept...
Though Flipkart claimed that it would take 3-4 days for the delivery, Got the Book on The Very Next Day...
The Key To This Book Arrived on 27th Sept...
Printing And Binding Is Fine...
The Flipkart Book Marker is a Pleasant Surprise ,looks beautiful and quite useful too..
The Major Point Is...
This Book is a Revised Edition By An Indian Author ...
If you take a closer look on the books Front Wrapper , you Can See the Indian Author Name in Yellow Color... Revised By N.D.V.PRASADA RAO..
In the Examples And Exercises it contains Many Indian names..
I wonder only the names are changed by the Indian Author or the original books contents are modified in the name of Revision..
Wren And Martin itself are a great series of books and it doesn't need Revision or any makeover by any author...(Just My Opinion)
I have read the the Wren And Martin series during 19993-94,but don't remember the exact contents and the Edition now...
Can anyone confirm this?
Will look forward to get the original text if possible...
at the time of purchasing i am tensed about the edition of the book because website is showing 2005 but they people said to sir if book is of old edition you can return the book i refund you the money
but when i got the book its completely new edition in very good price and in very good condition if you want to purchase this book go ahead a very nice book
wren and martin was the first book on grammar that i purchased in my school days... after finishing my school i purchased murphy's books on grammar(available here in the price range of rs.99-301) and i find these books extremely helpful as compared to this particular book....the reason for the success of this book is the word of mouth publicity (mostly done by people who hardly know a thing or two of english)..the content of this book lacks quality....i strongly recommend raymond murphy's books for better understanding of english grammar.
Ordered it along with the "Key To Wren & Martin's High School English Grammar & Composition" and a timely delivery was done by flipkart. It is a very popular book in students community and is really very useful for all of us. I've purchased it specially for my Children to enhance their English Language skills grammatically and also to revise and test my own english language skills once again after passing my MA in English Literature way back in 1999. This book along with it's key is a great combination one can really have. Just go for it without any second thoughts.
this book was my 7th item from the flipkart by now...and i have got the delivery of every item on the day it was expected to be delivered...
i am very impressed by the quick service of flip kart and authenticity of the products..

I am a teacher and I thought every student must have this book in his bag. Very very nice book to improve your English. Student...Read More
