Title Page from 1871 edition of John Broadus' well-known book on preaching. The words "Second Edition" refer to the second printing of the 1st edition, published in 1870. I collect pre-1900 editions of this book and have 11 pre-1900 editions and nine 1900 and later. Several years ago, I was able to view and handle Broadus' original manuscript. Still one of the best books on preaching.
