Practical Logic: or Hints to Young Theme-Writers, for the Purpose of Leading them to Think and Reason with Accuracy.

London: G. and W.B. Whittaker, 1823. First edition of a work intended to “fill up a remarkable gap in the course of elementary treatises intended for youth,” on “the art of just and accurate reasoning.” The author was a teacher of grammar and elocution, and the orientation of this book is largely linguistic. With the half-title and a leaf of publishers’ advertisements at end. A very good copy of a scarce book. Original boards, uncut, printed paper label considerably chipped. Joints rubbed and starting, but sound, small hole in front free endpaper. Twelvemo. xii, 114, [2] pp. Item #15980

OCLC cites two copies outside Britain, at Chicago and Kansas.
