A Critical Pronouncing Dictionary, and Expositor of: WALKER (John)

About this Item: London: Printed for J. Johnson. iter alia, 1806. 4to, 264 x 205 mms., pp. 87 [88 advertisement, 543, 544 blank], contemporary tree calf, spine ornately gilt, black leather label; corners worn, joints rubbed, but a very good copy. This was the last edition of this work to be published in the lifetime of John Walker (1732 - 1807), but at least another 35 editions were published. In the 18th century, the public on both sides of the Atlantic were eager for guidance on how to speak correctly. John 'Elocution' Walker (1732 1807) met this demand by illustrating how to reproduce a 'cultured' London accent, which he described as 'undoubtedly the best'. A Critical Pronouncing Dictionary (1791) gives advice for people with Scottish or Irish accents, and above all for Londoners with a Cockney accent, which according to Walker was 'a thousand times more offensive and disgusting' (British Library). The first edition of 1971 was widely reviewed, and The European Magazine and London Review termed it, rather lamely, "contains many words omitted in all preceding ones, [and] may be recommended to the reader, as it will afford that information for which works of this kind are calculated.".

About this Item: printed by Budd and Bartram, for H. & P. Price [et al.], Philadelphia, 1803. First American edition, 8vo, pp. cxxxii, [1], [990]; 3 vertical cracks in spine, else good and sound in full original sheep, red morocco label. Based on the third edition of 1798, this edition is quite rare in the trade -- the Cordell copy is imperfect, and Alston locates only the copies at Yale, Columbia, and the Library of Congress; OCLC, however, finds 22 in all in the likely locations. Sheridan, Perry and Entick were the only English lexicographers to precede Walker in the American market. Unlike these dictionaries, though, Walker's took hold on American soil, and editions of him proliferated here through the first half of the 19th century. Much of Walker's theory of pronunciation was later adopted by Joseph Worcester, who introduced in his own dictionaries Walker's "correct" or "King's English" pronunciation to Americans, thereby exerting Walker's considerable influence over the speech of many Americans.

About this Item: sold by G. G. J. and J. Robinson and T. Cadell, London, 1791. First edition of Walker's greatest dictionary, which had a more profound effect on the pronunciation of English than any other; 4to, pp. xvi, 71, [1] plus unpaginated lexicon in triple column, very mild spotting throughout, else a very good copy in contemporary full calf, red morocco label on gilt-paneled spine, joints a little rubbed, spine a bit soiled. An actor and lecturer on elocution, Walker (1732-1807) "enjoyed the patronage and friendship of Dr. Johnson, Edmund Burke, and other distinguished men" (DNB). One of the most influential dictionaries in the history of English lexicography: Walker's famous pronunciations were eventually married with Johnson's text; and editions of Johnson-Walker proliferated into the 20th century. Thus did Walker's pronunciations become synonymous not only with standard English, but good breeding and social standing, and it remains the basis of English speech in use today. Alston V, 336.
