Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Dictionary of Volapük: Volapük-English, English-Volapük

N the following pages will be found an exposition of the now con siderable vocabulary of Volapuk, which will aid English-speaking people in acquiring a practical familiarity with this international language, even though they may be unacquainted with any of the foreign languages in which dictionaries of Volapuk have previously been published. It is hoped that this little book may prove to be an aid in the propagation of this, the first, attempt at the introduction of a common language which has met with any noteworthy degree of success. For Volapuk has obtained a footing of its own among the speakers of twenty-one different tongues, and its adherents are numbered by hundreds of thousands. The number of persons who now count Volapuk among their acquirements has in. Creased rapidly, in response to the felt want for some means of inter. National communication which could be easily acquired, and which would express the same idea to the Swede and the African, to the German and the Chinese, to the American and the Turk, which should be free from figures of speech, and which should be logically accurate; and all this is claimed for Volapuk.

The propagation of this language has recently received an impetus, due to the report to the Philological Society of London by Alexander Ellis, Vice-president of the Society, to whom had been referred a propo sitiou for an international philological congress for the purpose of perfect ing a universal language. He reports against such a congress, for the reason that there already exists a universal language, Volapuk, which has a large number of adherents in all countries of the world, and which is completely elaborated in grammar and vocabulary. In another part of the same report he says All those who desire the insubstantiation of that phantom of a universal language which has ditted before so many minds from the days of the Tower of Babel, should, I think, add their voices to the many thousands who are ready to exclaim 1570036: volapiu long live Volapuk.
