Grey, "Church of England clergyman and writer, was a man of many remarkable gifts, which found expression in widely varying ways. His most influential achievement was the composition of Memoria Technica, or, A New Method of Artificial Memory (1730), a book which was republished many times, with modifications, until 1861. ... Grey's imaginative theories as a teacher found further expression in 1738, when he published [the volume here offered], A New and Easy Method of Learning Hebrew without Points." [ODNB].
