★ Why I Am a Vegetarian
Why Im a vegetarian is an 1895 pamphlet based on an appeal by J. p. Lovecraft.Howard Moore before the Chicago vegetarian society. It has been reprinted several times by the society and other publishers.
1. Background. (Фон)
John Howard Moore, born in Missouri in 1862, was an American writer, zoologist, and natural science teacher, as well as a prominent member of the Chicago Vegetarian society.
Around 1886, Moore became a vegetarian for ethical reasons. He advocated for the ethical treatment of animals and wrote several books, essays, and pamphlets on the subject, as well as on the topics of vegetarianism, evolutionary history, and humanism.
Carricka Le Favre, a well-known health lecturer, clothing reformer, parenting expert, and physical education advocate, founded the Chicago Vegetarian society around 1890, which Moore joined shortly thereafter while attending the University of Chicago. Moore received a bachelors degree from the University of Chicago in Zoology. While attending University, Moore was one of the founders of the vegetarian food Club, which he eventually led and led.
Moore later wrote several well-known books, such as the 1906 work universal kinship, the 1909 work the New ethics, and the 1916 work savage survivals, among many other publications.
1.1. Background. Addresses. (Адреса)
Moore wrote an article called" Why Im a vegetarian around the beginning of 1895, which focused primarily on the benefits of living on a plant-based diet, as well as his opinions on advances in animal rights. On March 3, 1895, he delivered a speech to the Chicago vegetarian society at the newly built great Northern hotel on the northeast corner of Dearborn street and Jackson Boulevard in Chicago. Moore was persuaded to publish the article, and it was soon published. The Chicago Vegetarian society published a pamphlet, "why Im a vegetarian," based on his speech, later that year. The Preface is dated may 3, 1895. This publication was the first from the Mur.
Another address, after the pamphlet was printed, was delivered by Moore around June 1896 at the philosophical club in Englewood, Chicago. The monthly newsletter food, home and garden reported that the lecture was well received by those present, followed by a discussion. Regarding what she read, Dr. viola H. Ludden wrote that the article was extensive and excellent, full of scientific suggestions and humane thought."
Moore continued to speak on the subject of vegetarianism and animal rights at the Chicago vegetarian society for the next two decades, until his death in 1916.
2. Publication. (Публикация)
A pamphlet entitled "why I am a vegetarian," with the subtitle an appeal to the Chicago vegetarian society," was published by the Purdy publishing company in Chicago, Illinois, in 1895. A 44-page pamphlet measuring 5.5 x 18 centimeters is described as "an explanation that plant food is much better for humanity in a truly healthy sense, kill for food", in an advertisement published on April 15, 1902 in the Vegetarian Magazine. It was also published in the same year as a 42-page pamphlet by ward VAUX, 5496 Ellis Avenue, and in the periodical good health. It also appeared in the September 1897 issue of the Chicago Vegetarian.
An early edition of the publication was available for 10 cents. The 48-page third edition, printed in 1898, sold for 25 cents per issue, or 5 copies for $ 1.00. It was advertised as having a fancy green cover that was fastened with a silk cord, and as suitable for gifts. Publisher was the company "Eastman Kodak". By 1899, the publication had reached its seventh thousandth print run and was still being sold in corrugated paper at a price of 25 cents. Why Im a vegetarian is held in universities and public libraries in the United States.
The answer to Moores pamphlet, entitled" why Im not a vegetarian: why hes wrong, was written by a Danish-born American lawyer, lecturer, and political activist, Lawrence Gronlund. Moore later responded to Gronlunds letter by saying that for a carnivore, "every meal is murder" and that "to say why a person is not a vegetarian is to give an excuse or try to give an excuse for being a predatory animal."
