Creeds of Great Business Men – Anniversary Edition – Printed in Gregg Shorthand

This is the second version of Creeds of Great Business Men in Gregg Shorthand. This book was published in 1932 with shorthand plates by Winifred Kenna Richmond. It matches the 1929 Anniversary Gregg Shorthand Manual. In 1933, this book was included in the box set “American Classics in Gregg Shorthand” with four other Shorthand novels.

The first Gregg Shorthand version of Creeds of Great Business Men was published in 1918 and matches the 1916 Pre-Anniversary Gregg Shorthand Manual. The Shorthand plates were written by Georgie Gregg.

The Gregg Publishing Company also published an English text version of this book. Creeds of Great Business Men was originally published in 1913 by the International Harvester Company, so the English text is in the public domain.

The shorthand plates in this 1932 book entered the public domain as soon as it was first published. There is no copyright notice in the book. Any book first published in the US before January 1, 1978, without a proper copyright notice immediately went into the public domain at the time of publication. There are also no copyright notices in any of the other individual Gregg Shorthand novel versions of existing works, such as Alice in Wonderland, Rip Van Winkle, the Great Stone Face, etc. All copyrights belonged to the original material. Back then, the US Copyright Office did not allow Gregg to copyright shorthand novels based on existing literary works.
