    This book is divided into thematic sections which deal with issues central to English in the eighteenth century. These include linguistic ideology and the grammatical tradition, the contribution of women to the writing of grammars, the interactions of writers at this time and how politeness was encoded in language, including that on a regional. That is a good question. If you are looking for a book with 'rules', my choice would have to be this one: Fumblerules, a Lighthearted Guide to Grammar and Good Usage, by William Safire, Doubleday, The book is sectioned into fifty short chapte.
