AN ELEMENTARY MANUAL
CHARLES SEARS BALDWIN, A.M., PH.D.
INSTRUCTOR IN RHETORIC IN YALE UNIVERSITY
LONGMANS, GREEN, AND CO.
This little manual aims to supply for the first term in college such elementary instruction as seems necessary in reviewing and supplementing the work of the preparatory schools before proceeding to more special courses. To this end it deals exclusively with structure, and with expository structure as being at once more obvious, more useful, and less artistic than the other kinds. The book may thus be used as a direct introduction to Mr. Lamont's Specimens of Exposition, for instance, or to Mr. Brewster's Studies in Structure and Style. But it aspires to more general usefulness as a students' pocket-book of rhetoric.
For advice on the manuscript and for corrections in proof I am indebted to my colleague, Mr. Chauncey Wetmore Wells ; for the latter favour, to Professor Thomas R. Price and Professor G. R. Carpenter of Columbia University.
