IS WHAT IT PURPORTS TO BE, VIZ:
A Practical I think that its method is philosophical and sound, and is developed according to the practical judgment of an experienced teacher of the subject.—Moses Coit Tyler, Prof. of Eng. Lit., Univ. Michigan.
I have long wished for just such a book to aid me in the criticism of preaching: It is thoroughly practical and descends into details, really helping the speaker who follows its suggestions just where he needs the advice of a practical master.-J. M. Hoppin, D.D., Prof. of Homiletics, Yale College.
We see everywhere in his book the hand of the experienced teacher, meeting the difficulties gradually but surely, and overcoming them with precision and ease.—The Tutor, "Baltimore.
The completeness and exactness and simplicity of this manual as a directory excite my admiration. It is so just and full of nature, that I can imagine no course of training better adapted to develop every man's own peculiar eloquence, while it fixes a standarıl of conformity, which must be indispensable in common.–Alex. T. McGill, D.D., LL.D., Prof. of Homiletics, Princeton Theological Seminary.
The work is evidently that of a skillful teacher, bringing before students of oratory the results of philosophical thinking and successful experience in an admirable form and a narrow compass.-J. W. Churchill, Prof. of Elocution, Andover Theological Seminary.
and Philosophical Treatise Builds on such deep foundations its simple instructions as to leave room for no new . orator's manual" for years.—Chicago Alliance.
We regard this book as the freshest, clearest, most complete and soundly philosophical work on a public speaker's training that it has been our fortune to meet. The prefatory remarks are full of good sense and ought first to be read. A faithful study of . this book will result in a natural, graceful and effective style of public speaking.—The Christian Union (written by Prof. J. W. Churchill).
It is more philosophical and thorough, according to my opinion, than any other book on the subject.-Prof. John E. Earp, Ph. D., Indiana Asbury University.
on Vocal Culture, The portion on Vocal Culture . . . would work an entire revolution in some speakers, greatly to the satisfaction of their hearers.–Central Christian Advocate, St. Louis.
“The Orator's Manual" is of value not only to public speakers but also to singers and to all who wish a pleasing voice. . . The Professor understands the matter, and has given directions which any person with ordinary intelligence can carry out. : . We know of no book that embodies our views of correct breathing as well as this.—The Voice, Albany, N.Y.
Emphasis His study of the varying vocal inflections proper for the expression of varying emotions is surprisingly elaborate, has done more
to reduce oratory to an exact science than any other elocutionist with whom we have any acquaintance.-Philadelphia North American.
The pages devoted to the subject of emphasis are well worth the price of the book.-Hamilton College Literary Monthly.
An exhaustive study of the elements of emphasis.-Christian Union.
and Gesture, Particularly full on the subject of Gestures, showing their natural language. – Wisconsin Journal of Education.
I have been particularly struck with the value of the chapters on Force and Gesticulation—the last a subject greatly neglected and in which we moderns are children when compared with the ancients. Action of a dignified and powerful sort is almost unknown.-Prof. Hoppin, of the Art School, Yale College.
With Selections for Declamation and Reading. Are made with admirable judgment.—Boston Home Journal. ELOCUTION.- Maud asks for a collection of good pieces to speak.
We cannot do better than to commend to her, and all lovers of elocution, “The Orator's Manual.' It contains a very choice selection of pieces for declamation and reading.–New York Tribune. Designed as a Text-Book for Schools and Colleges, and for Public Speakers who are obliged to study
without an Instructor. Hitherto there has been no text-book adapted to the necessities of the case of overloaded teachers of English Teachers and students will owe a debt of gratitude to Prof. Raymond for the invaluable assistance he has rendered.-J. T. Murfee, Pres. Howard Coll.
I think it will do just the work I want done in my Freshman class.-J. M. Geery, Prof. English Literature, Ripon College.
Very useful, not only as a text-book, but to teachers who need some guide, also to private learners.-Wis. Jour. of Education.
It is undoubtedly the most complete and thorough treatise on oratory for the practical student ever published. If you cannot have Raymond as an instructor get his book, and if you are a diligent student you will find the Professor demonstrating on every page the principles of his art almost as clearly and emphatically as in the class-room.-The Educational Weekly, Chicago.
Per The special attention of Teachers is called to the suggestions in the Preface for the proper method of using this book.
