Description

Many years ago I printed an outline booli on this subject {Public Speaking and Debate) for the use of persons who found learned treatises on oratory uninteresting or too profound to be intelligible. Though dealing alone with the Rudiments of the art, it was reprinted in America, and in 1853 the New York Tribune described it as being ' unpretentious and practical.' It being now rewritten after the experience of forty years, I trust the reader will find the same qualities still in these nejv pages. In 1862, the Rev. Mr Vickers of Boston, America, then visiting England, informed me that he took up, in a New York book-shop, a copy of a work entitled. Public Speaking and Debate, by John Bower. Upon opening it he found that it was an American edition of Public Speaking and Debate, by G. J. Holyoake, with the name of the author borne by another. This, I hope, may be taken as proof that the book was thought useful by the new author.
