An American Rhetoric


This scarce title has a red cloth cover with gilt lettering.  Also included is a carbon of a typewritten personal letter to the author from Raymond F. Crossman dated May 29, 1952 acknowledging receipt of a copy of this book.  This is a clean, tight copy with very occasional pencil marks, no serious soil or wear.  Watt's book is a helpful and readable guide to good, grammatical writing, with all the humor of Strunk & White--a useful tool for the college student or struggling essayist.  440 pages, including index and glossary; approx. 5"x8".
