IN ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF
HIS HIGH ATTAINMENTS AS AN ELOCUTIONIST.
IN the preparation of this new edition the publishers have still kept in view the purpose of presenting to the public a Handbook of reasonable dimensions containing all necessary practical instructions on the Art of Elocution. Musical Accompaniment to Recitation-now so much in vogue-has also received most careful attention. For acquiring this pleasing and effective adjunct to declamatory passages full directions have been furnished, together with numerous illustrations in music relating to the Dual Art. The copious and varied Selections for Reading and Reciting have not, in the main, hitherto appeared in any similar collection, and will be found expressly adapted to illustrate the principles enunciated in the work. The several departments concerning the technique of Elocution and of the Art in combination with Music have been adequately treated by well-known authorities; and some of the more important collateral elements have been briefly dealt with in the Introduction. The present edition has been amplified by 314 pages, consisting of New Selections, and a chapter on RecitationMusic by a popular composer, with many musical examples. To furnish so many Selections from the works of modern writers, most of which are under copyright, has proved a somewhat arduous task, which, however, has been lightened in sensible measure by the ready co-operation of authors and publishers. Cordial thanks are now tendered to those authors and publishers for their kindness, due recognition of which has in each instance been clearly set forth.
