I hope it is clear that I joined this group because of my family history (Astrid Ramsey, platewriter), and not for the purpose of selling books. However, it just happens that this morning I walked past my Business section and spied the following 3 books lying on the edge of the shelf, virtually shouting at me! So in case anyone’s interested, details below. Shipping is $5 per order. All are in Very Good condition. We accept credit cards, checks, or PayPal.
TAQUIGRAFIA GREGG, 1949. Has owner’s name and a few pencil notes. Others on the Internet run from $45 to $63; my price is $25.
Rupert P. SoRelle and Charles W. Kitt, WORDS: Spelling, Pronunciation, definition, and Application. 2nd revised edition (1929). Gregg Publishing Company. Includes about 50 pages of technical vocabulary in about 50 industries.(Not in shorthand) $12.50
Emma B. Dearborn, SPEEDWRITING, The Natural Shorthand, with Study Guide, [1937/1938] Apparently the first volume of the series. [Obviously not Gregg, perhaps a philistinic concept, but perhaps of interest. At least it’s cursive! I have talked to students recently who reported they were not even taught longhand in school, but were taught to print like a computer or a book; they found it difficult to read cursive writing. What is the world coming to????] $20.
