This is an 1894 printing of this work. Its copyright was registered in 1884.T. Whiting Bancroft was Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature in Brown University. Bancroft's composition text seeks to add a focus on rhetoric, modes and types of composition. Bancroft intends for his text to be used in conjunction with existing composition textbooks. The treatment of argumentative composition intends to show relation between deductive and inductive thought. It is divided into two sections: kinds of composition and practice in composition. Kinds of composition are broken into three parts: Explanatory, argumentative, and persuasive composition. The section on practice of composition is primarily concerned with themes. It provides examples of themes and outlines of essays that explore these themes. In the last part of the practice of composition on the relation of reading to composition, the author has credited the influence of librarians. The Schultz Archive includes the complete text; however, some of the pages are missing and have blank scans in their places. The quality of the text is high.
