Having become a bit of a GS Anniversary used book addict :-), I keep looking on eBay and at the used books at Amazon, Abebooks, alibris, etc.
I have already purchased:
Anniversary – Functional Method Part 1
Anniversary – Functional Method Part 2
Gregg Shorthand – Anniversary Edition (for reference)
Gregg Shorthand Dictionary
5,000 Most Used Shorthand Forms
Fundamental Drills in Gregg Shorthand for Reading, Writing and Transcription
with the key printed from a pdf file on this site.
Gregg Speed Studies – 3rd edition
Graded Readings in Gregg Shorthand (1930) by Alice Hunter
Progressive Exercises with Key (1929) that was one of the pdf files I found here.
Functional Method Dictation
Shorthand Dictation Studies by Wallace Bowman
From Carlos’ very useful pdf file showing the covers of all the GS books – categorized by “system” – the following are the other Anniversary books.
Are any of these worth purchasing/looking for?
Which would be the most useful and/or most interesting?
Which are redundant to the ones I already own? Or redundant to each other ? (i.e. all of the Speed Building books on the list)
Some seem to be readily available… others I have yet to see for sale.

Which would be the top 3 or 4 or 5 to buy?
The one that “calls” to me at the moment is Gregg Shorthand Phrase Book. But I shall await your advice/opinions.
