"These lectures upon the Mechanism of Speech were delivered at the First Summer Meeting of the American Association to Promote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf, before an audience composed largely of persons professionally engaged in the work of teaching speech to deaf children. In 1906 these lectures were for the first time collected in book form and reprinted by the Association, chiefly for the use of its members, but enough copies were struck off to allow of the presentation of the work to the general public in the hope that it would prove of interest to a larger circle of readers. This hope was realized and there is now a demand for another edition. The first edition was printed during the author's absence in Europe, so that he had no opportunity of revising the proofs; and, unfortunately, in using the unfamiliar type representing Melville Bell's Speech-Symbols, the printers made quite a number of typographical mistakes. In this second edition advantage has been taken of the opportunity to correct these errors"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
