"The Home School of Elocution"
or easy Lessons in the Art of Entertaining  1896. This book is a choice treasury of new and popular recitations, readings, original and adapted comedies from celebrated authors and composers including descriptive, pathetic, humorous recitals with music for schools, public exhibitions, anniversaries, and programs for entertainment on special occasions, etc. It has been compiled and edited by Henry Davenport Northrop and richly embellished with full-page photo-type engravings.
