I’ve recently been looking at the Rider university collection of shorthand stuff donated by Louis Leslie. Rather interesting that the collection has the 1902 manual. I thought that, out of all the preanniversary editions, the 1916 version is the most mature, or the 1888 edition would be there because of its historical significance.
A question though: has anyone investigated the difference between the 1902 edition, (which was apparently the last version that Gregg had control of) and the 1916 version. I have looked at the first few chapters and the 1916 has a few more briefs, with some briefs taking on more meanings. Was there any change in the theory? I don’t think that there are any differences.
