Looking for ‘Wild’s’ grammar…

At the moment I am transcribing and analysing nineteenth- century family letters from New England. In one of the letters a schoolboy mentions Wild’s grammar. So far I have not succeeded in finding details about this book. It may have been printed in America, but at the time grammars were also often imported from Great Britain. If anyone can give me more information about this book I would be much obliged.

    Alston (1965) mentions a grammar by John Wild, a “twopenny accidence”. But the date of the grammar, of which no copy has been located, is believed to be around 1719, so it is unlikely to be the one you are looking for.
