Whilst looking for shorthand resources in our local library, I happened to run across the following book which appears to be an original from 1935. (Still in amazingly good condition)
The Teaching Of Gregg Shorthand By The Functional Method
Louis A. Leslie
Inside the front cover it has a brief handwritten message from Mr. Leslie, which I’ve attached as an image in this post.
I have no idea how common such an inscription might actually be, but I thought it was neat seeing actual writing from “Mr. Shorthand” himself back in 1935, and thought I would share it here.
