About this Item

Porter, an early 19th Century Congregational minister and seminary teacher, wrote several works on rhetoric and speech, on what he called the "art of reading." This book, "The Rhetorical Reader," was intended for use in academies and high schools and was issued in over 200 editions throughout the U.S. during the 1800s, becoming a seminal document in the study of speech pathology. This 1849 copy is from the first or second printing of the second edition, revised by James N. MacElligot. About 4 3/4 x 7 inches, 312 pages, including an appendix and 133 reading exercises, in full brown leather-covered boards with gold lettering on paper label on spine. Leather is considerably scuffed and worn, especially at corners. Leather on spine is chipped with quarter-inch pieces missing from spine ends. Both exterior and interior hinges are cracked but continuing to hold quite firmly. Text edges soiled. Text is clean and complete, though end pages and text proper lightly foxed. A faint signature is just visible on fep with a one-line notation on rear end page. All that said, book is basically clean and fully legible and remains a decent example of an early document in speech pathology's history. Bookseller Inventory # 005531
