1899 printing of the 1897 copyrighted text. The author is credited as a Ph.D. and as Associate Professor of English in Lewis Institute and in the University of Chicago. The preface argues that teaching composition needs more utilization of literature and and more appeal to social interests, more inductions and generalizations by the student himself, and more time for practice and criticism. The subjects of the chapters include reading aloud and spelling, punctuation, dividing a paragraph into sentences, organizing the theme, word choice, mastery of a writing vocabulary, letter-writing, reproduction, abstract, summary, abridgment, narration and description, and exposition and argument. Writing exercises and illustrative examples are used throughout. The Schultz Archive's copy is roughly the complete text.
