us, but our choice has been carefully made, and limited space precludes an extension of the list. It is believed, however, that a close study of these will reach better results than a cursory view of a greater number of speakers.
A prefatory list of the authors read in the preparation of this book would be necessarily incomplete, if not suggestive of invidious distinctions; but we wish to acknowledge here our indebtedness to many sources of information, such as books on oratory and orators, history, biography, magazine articles, and newspapers. Out of a mass of biographical material we have considered each orator from the viewpoint of his art, and have attempted to make such analysis as will reveal the main essentials of his success as a public speaker. We trust that this conservation of oratorical thought may be attractive to the general reader, and that teachers and students in secondary schools and colleges may be interested in this, another effort to diffuse knowledge that may aid in the study of that art of arts ---- oratory.
