This set of eight volumes forms part one of the "British Rhetoric in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries" series. Part two examines Traditional or Ciceronian Rhetorics and part three the New Rhetorics. The works comprising "The Elocutionary Movement" are very rare and have never been collected together before. There is a gap in US university libraries, for example, where masters and/or doctoral programmes in rhetoric and composition are offered, but which do not own the primary works. The series can thus fill a major gap in the collections of such schools. The set contains a representative range of texts, covering both those that have been cited in secondary literature, and less well-known works that were popular in their period and have distinctive or representative features making them of use to modern scholars. Chronologically and generically diverse, these texts are fairly evenly distributed over the period 1700-1850 (with the 18th century favoured) and are written in a variety of literary forms - expository prose, question and answer, anthology of examples and verse.
