    the later/late? 19th and early 20th centuries

    The New Latin Grammar is one of a series of Latin grammars written by American scholars in the later 19th and early 20th centuries, incorporating the latest knowledge about Indo-European linguistics and the latest ways of thinking about syntax. (Anne Mahoney, Essential Latin Grammar, page i)

    Can I say the late 19th and early 20th centuries?

    'Late' is more natural, in my opinion.

    If they have previously mentioned a Latin grammar from 1870, then the next one could easily be from the later 19th century.

    Bennett's New Latin Grammar has been a standard introductory grammar for many years. For this edition, I have updated the sections on the Indo-European language family and on Latin meter, and added a brief bibliography; I have also re-organized the index of sources to make it easier to find references to a particular text. Bennett's grammar is not as detailed as those of Allen and Greenough, Gildersleeve, Hale and Buck, or (for syntax) Woodcock, making it suitable for intermediate-level students.Charles E. Bennett (1858-1921) spent most of his career as professor of Latin at Cornell University. In addition to the New Latin Grammar, he produced several commentaries on Latin authors, articles on Latin grammar, and textbooks.He was a member of the Committee on Academic Freedom and Academic Tenure of the American Association of University Professors in 1915, and one of the original signatories of the AAUP's Declaration of Principles which helped shape the modern system of tenure in American universities.The New Latin Grammar is one of a series of Latin grammars written by American scholars in the later 19th and early 20th centuries, incorporating the latest knowledge about Indo-European linguistics and the latest ways of thinking about syntax. Nearly one hundred years later, the main outlines of Bennett's approach are still sound; for this reason, the present edition has been only lightly revised.

    Well, there, then!
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
