Hamlet in Gregg Shorthand: an "American Treasure of the Library of Congress"

A few years ago, the Library of Congress (LOC) had an exhibit named “American Treasures Gallery”, which showcased some objects considered by the librarians as treasures. The exhibit closed a while ago. However, the objects of the collection are available online at http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/treasures/. One of the chosen treasures is the 1931 edition of Hamlet in Anniversary shorthand, with plates by Mrs. Richmond. Unfortunately, they only show one page.

    I found a copy of the 1931 Anniversary Hamlet a few months ago at an estate sale. It was the only time I ever found it available for sale. I scanned it and the full scan on the group site. It is also available at the above Internet Archive link. There are now 20 items that I put on the Internet Archives, mostly Gregg Novels and Textbooks. I scanned some myself and paid to have others scanned.

    I don't know why the Library of Congress didn't scan the entire book. It went into the public domain, the day it was published because it did not have a copyright notice.
