Prefact.

Of the many “Speakers” and “Readers” published, nearly all contain a large proportion of passages more fitted for silent reading than for reading aloud and for recitation; and which have been apparently chosen rather for their beauty than for their fitness for elocutionary practice. In this Work, the Editor has sought to select passages combining the highest poetry and eloquence with peculiar fitness for expressive reading aloud and recitation; and trusts that he has thus supplied a want that teachers and students of elocution and masters of schools have long felt.

The Editor has much pleasure in thanking the Authors and Proprietors of various Copyright pieces, for their kind permission to insert them.

For Instruction in Elocution, the reader is respectfully referred to Hartley's “Elocution made Easy,” price 1s., post-free for 12 stamps. Groombridge and Sons, 5, Paternoster Row, London.
