THE favor with which this book has been received by the public, and the consequent extensive demand for it, having rendered necessary another renewal of the stereotype plates, the opportunity has been improved for a minute examination and thorough revision of its pages. A slight change has been made in the introductory matter, rhetorical marks are used more sparingly in the lessons, and it is believed, all remaining typographical errors corrected. No change has been made in the matter or arrangement of the Reading Lessons.
In the preparation of the work, the compiler has not aimed at originality, but has endeavored to combine and present, as far as could be done in a single volume, the most valuable features of many popular books on the subject of Elocution and Rhetorical reading. Free use has been made, therefore, of the works of Bell, Graham, Ewing, Pinnock, Scott, Wood, McCulloch, Enfield, Mylius, Sheridan Knowles, Walker, and others. While the compiler will not compare the present work with elaborate treatises on the subject, he trusts he will be found to have included every thing that could be made available for a school manual.
The compiler has also received much valuable assistance from an able and experienced teacher, who has devoted much time and study to the subject of Elocution.* He is not without the hope, therefore, that his labors may prove serviceable to those engaged in the business of education.
