THE CANADIAN ELOCUTIONIST by Anna K. Howard (PDF ebook)
This is one of the all-time classic guides to the principles, rules, illustrations and exercises to make good readers and easy, graceful and correct speakers, written in 1885, but with much value and application in teaching speech & elocution even today.
From the introduction:
There is no question of the importance of the study of Elocution as part of a good education. Almost everyone is liable to be called upon, perhaps at a few minutes notice, to explain his views and give his opinions on subjects of various degrees of importance, and to do so with effect ease in speaking is most requisite. Ease implies knowledge, and address in speaking is highly ornamental as well as useful even in private life.
