Lectures on rhetoric and belles lettres by Hugh Blair ( Book )
13 editions published between 1814 and 1815 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Manuscript, in a single hand, of copies of 39 lectures on rhetoric. Each lecture is organized around a single topic which include the nature and use of criticism; metaphor; hyperbole; rules of figurative language; and the history and types of eloquence. Lecture 6, on language, explores the development of metaphor in "the first ages," when men lacked the vocabulary necessary to describe the objects around them, and includes the language of the Cherokee nations of Canada in the category of such societies. Lecture 27, in discussing oral delivery, describes the three pitches of a man's voice; and the last two lectures in the collection declare tragedy more noble than comedy and explain the importance of the sentiments

Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto ( Book )
4 editions published in 1816 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ariosto's Orlando Furioso (1532) is the culmination of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Saracen invasion of France, a brilliantly witty parody of the medieval romances, and a fitting monument to the court society of the Italian Renaissance which gave it birth. In a kaleidoscope of scenes and emotions, three principal stories are developed: the love of Orlando for Angelica; the war between the Franks and the Saracens; and the love of Ruggiero, a Saracen, for Bradamant, a Christian. Enlivening and unifying the whole work is the vital personality of the author, endlessly teasing his readers and dropping casual asides about his contemporaries. Though highly serious in purpose and sophisticated in design, Orlando Furioso displays to the full Ariostro's remarkable sense of the absurd. This unabridged prose translation faithfully captures the narrative entire and renders meaning in its lightest shadings." - Back cover
