"How to Write and Speak Effective English", by Edward Frank Allen. Published 1938 by World Syndicate Publishing Co. Hardback. 329 pages, no dust jacket. Good condition; would be very good for a book this age if not for some scribbling on the endpapers. Lovers of language can glimpse what has and has not changed in English usage over the past 70 years from this volume. An interesting sample of Depression-era writing.
