This text is something of a classic and had been a great resource for learners and enthusiasts for years now. Don't expect a prettily illustrated, easily approachable tome, however, this book is very much academic, and it approaches the topic of the development of the language as we know it today through a careful narrative which provides you with a heap of facts, and it's up to you to keep up! That's not to claim that is a bore, by no means, but what it is at its very basic is a textbook, and a fine one at that.
