The Speaker  by William Enfield LL D  London 1815

The Speaker: or, Miscellaneous Pieces, selected from the best English writers, and disposed under proper heads, with a view to facilitate the Improvement of Youth in Reading and Speaking.  To which are presented Two Essays I. On Elocution.  II On reading works of Taste.  By William Enfield, LL.D.  London, Stereotyped and printed by Andrew Wilson.  1815.

Purple cloth hard cover, 342 pages, binding is fairly tight (from page xix on)  Inside is not attached cover.  Inside the front cover is a lovely old sticker 'Stapley's (Late Elliott's) Royal Parade Library, Tunbridge Wells. 

This book starts off in rather unfortunate condition - water staining to first few pages,  pencil notations and drawings, then water marking through to about page 75.  From there on in it's quite good, with some staining to pages approx 300 to the end.  The last page is torn. 

This book is quite readable, and on lovely old paper (as you would expect from 1815!).

Please contact us if you have ANY queries prior to bidding. We only charge actual postage costs, and do combine.  Thanks for looking.
