Here is a very rare and interesting item. It is probably the first addition as it was a gift to Mrs. Jessie Wheeler, and also has a personal note to her inside, and signed by the author. This is a book about short hand writing, first published in 1905. It is a system of shorthand writing combining the principles of straight joinable and insertable vowel strokes and curved consonant strokes, both being subject to similar general rules of hooks and length. This book was also dedicated to John Collins, Of Dayton, Ohio, in acknowledgment of his many good qualities and his helpful suggestions, during the publication of this book. Very rare and unusual item . Very fine condition (RH).
