The objective of the writers was to report the current usage of the best speakers with regard to such words as were most liable to be mispronounced.
For the modern speaker, this antiquarian book from our past of nearly 150 years becomes a fascinating view of the progress or substance of our spoken language.
This book is in good vintage condition. The binding is very firm and the pages are coloring with age. The book edges show shelf wear, particularly at the binding. The flyleaf has a name written on it, and there are three small holes punched in it for no reason that I can see.
This book measures 3 1/2 inches by 5 inches by 1/2 inch and has 99 pages.
