Marsh, Ebenezer Grant:

AN ORATION, DELIVERED BEFORE THE PBK SOCIETY, AT THEIR ANNIVERSARY MEETING, IN NEW-HAVEN, ON THE FIFTH OF DECEMBER, A. D. 1797.

Hudson & Goodwin, Hartford: 1798 32pp, later plain wraps. Minor scattered foxing, Very Good. This learned Oration is a rebuttal of the "current" notion "that a knowledge of the learned, or, as they are otherwise denominated, the dead languages, is in no way essential to the study of our own language, and, indeed, that it is productive of no valuable purpose whatever." Marsh argues that such study "is the key to a great proportion of the sciences." FIRST EDITION. Evans 34046. Singerman 0120.
