Summary/Abstract: The essay represents a part of the research in the functional efficiency of the Polish language of the past centuries and it constitutes a contribution to the history of the teaching of the English language in Poland perceived in the historical-linguistic perspective. It is devoted to textbooks intended for learners of English published in Polish in the years 1788–1914. The object of analysis is constituted by the titles and the prefaces to the textbooks which were published in that period. The analysis enabled the indication of the typological variety ofthe textbooks, the recipient of the textbooks who is implied by their authors, the content of the textbooks and the attitude of the author to the content which is presented. The article indicates that the early English-language textbooks constitute a varied collection of non-literary texts whose research enables the supplementation of knowledge about the type of a text which is represented by textbooks for the study of foreign languages by a diachronic perspective.
