Description

This 10 volume set of "The World's Best Orations" is the Official Edition of the Special Testimoonial Set. It has almost 5000 pages and a comprehensive Index covering all 10 volumes.

It "is intended to be universal in its reach, a complete encyclopedia of oratory. The purpose is to present the best efforts of the world's greatest orators in all ages; and with this purpose kept in view as the matter of primary importance, to supplement the great orations with others that are representative and historically important — especially with those having a fundamental connection with the most important events in the development of Anglo-Saxon civilization. The greatest attention has been given to the representative orators of England and America, so that the work includes all that is most famous or most necessary to be
known in the oratory of the Anglo-Saxon race. Wherever possible, addresses have been published in extenso;" that is, the complete text.

"This has been the rule followed in giving the great orations. In dealing with minor orators, the selections made are considerable enough to show the style, method, and spirit. Where it has been necessary to choose between two orations of equal merit, the one having the greater historical significance has been selected. Of course it would not be possible, keeping within reasonable limits, to give every speech of every one worthy to be called an orator. Indeed, the greatest of orators sometimes failed. So we have carefully selected only those speeches
which manifest the power of eloquence; and this selection, we take pleasure in assuring our readers, has been made by the most competent critics of the country." Quoted from the editor's "Preface."
