How to pronounce words... On Washington's letters...



Item # 669404

December 21, 1795

FEDERAL ORRERY, Boston Dec. 21, 1795 

* Uncommon title

Certainly one of the less common American titles from the 18th century.
Page 1 has a short article: "Gen. Washington's Letters". Most of page 2 is taken up with a fascinating article: "Orthoepy". It's actually a word: the study of correct pronunciation. It begins: "In compliance with my premise I now send you the extract fro Walker's 'Principles of Pronunciation'..."with much, much more.
Four pages, very nice condition.
