Set of Shorthand Books for Sale

I just received a note from a lady selling her mother’s shorthand books. They are the Anniversary editions of “The Great Stone Face”, “The Man Without a Country”, “The Legend of
Sleepy Hollow”, “Creeds of Great Business Men”, and “Rip Van Winkle”, selling $80 for
all 5, or $20 apiece. The book covers (see below) appear in good condition and she’s willing to negotiate the price. If you’re interested, just let me know.

    1. Hi Mary! Unfortunately, someone contacted me yesterday about the books, but if you click on About, Contact, send me an email with the information and I'll forward it to the seller in case the first offer doesn't go through.

  1. Some of these books are available as PDFs on the Internet. For example, Rip Van Winkle:

    And a number of these older texts are available on Amazon as reproductions. You can never predict the quality, but it's the same if you buy a used book from that era–they can be pretty beat up sometimes.

    Of course a PDF isn't the same as holding an original printed text in your hands, but if you're just looking for the shorthand material it's fine.
