"A companion to the Dime Dialogues."
Cited in The house of Beadle and Adams, by A. Johannsen, under title: American speaker.
Series title taken from 1863 edition.
"Later, the Speaker was reissued with an identical title page, but with a reset front cover. The type is different, but the wording is the same except that the name of Louis Legrand is omitted, and there are large figures "1" in both upper right and left corners. The words "Number One" also occur after the word "Speaker." The first 71 pages are identical with the same pages of the unnumbered edition, but additional material was added at the bottom of page 72 and on succeeding pages to bring the number to 79, with one blank page at the end. ... The size remained the same although some copies were trimmed closer."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels, volume 1, page 402, no. 1.
