About this Item

123 pages; the first section on public speaking with very practical instructions on gestures, how-to: ".Faultering. How to get rid of it.Of Bellowing, or Speaking Too Loud-To be avoided.Mumbling, or Speaking too much to yourself-To be corrected.By this means he makes a kind of rumbling noise about the roof of his mouth, as if he were speaking out of a cave or a hogshead, and hardly ever sends forth one distinct sound, or conveys one articulate word.The voice to made soft and agreeable to the ear." and more; second section regarding Christian church oratory, history and practice; printed by David Carlisle Cambridge Street; original publishers' decoratively blindstamped dark brown cloth binding; gilt spine titles; light wear to the binding, bottom of spine end chipped a bit; some foxing to text; second section with pencil markings; very good condition and interesting; while this is clearly a good example of nineteenth century cloth binding, with the typical decorative elements found in such, this type of binding indicates that the 1805 sheets may have been bound much later in the 19th century; the quality of paper and the typographical use of the long 's' and use of catchwords indicates early eighteenth century for the text, as is printed.
