I ordered Dictation for Beginners, by Edith Bisbee, through abebooks. I am delighted to find it is a perfectly fitting, supplementary book to use with the 1929 Manual. It follows the lessons, giving examples that include the vocabulary of the Manual, and of Speed Studies. It was published in 1930 by The Gregg Publishing Company.
I am enjoying using the pdf of the Brief Form Drills from Edith Bisbee, and I find this book a charming help. It is easy to hold, easy to read, and easy to make good use of.
