The article discusses some aspects of Edmund Burke's practical rationale for publishing parliamentary oratory in Great Britain. The reason why Burke issued certain parliamentary speeches as separate publications was examined, and its explanation was also discussed. The author notes that separate publication was necessary for the parliamentary speeches that Burke issued to work their proper effect in parliament, and beyond.
