1847 printing of the 1847 copyrighted work. Roux is credited as Professor of French Language and Literature in the Mount Pleasant Academy, and as the author of "The Zetetic Method, or Easiest Method of Learning French." The text does not aspire to rhetoric for mature minds, but is rather a "first book." The method is influenced by Aristotle who argues youth should be taught composition through rewriting fables in verse into prose. Cicero and Quintilian are also quoted on the value of given pupils the ideas and structure for them to modestly amplify or adorn. The exercises in the book are meant to be written ex tempore in class. The sections of the book are: imitation of fables (2), imitation of legends and poems, amplifications and letters, and arguments. The Schultz Archive is roughly the complete text and includes the first few pages of "New Zetetic Method for English and French Composition"

1847 printing. No copyright date provided. The author is credited as Editor of the United States Gazette. A grammar handbook for those who feel "the need of simple and familiar explanations and illustrations, and oft-repeated rules." Chandler claims that this textbook is intended to present grammar instruction in a more interesting manner than it is usually presented. He claims that his text accomplishes this goal through the use of familiar language, numerous examples and illustrations, and through exercises in parsing. Chandler does not intend for this textbook to replace the grammar instructor, but that the book should be used as an effective supplement to in-class instruction. The Schultz Archive only includes a brief excerpt of the cover page, preface and the first 11 pages of content. The scans are good quality, but there are a few markings that obscure the text.
