STANDARD PHONOGRAPHIC VISITOR, New York, Dec. 14, 1868 This is a very curious little periodical themed on shorthand--unusual as such. "Phonography" was another word for a system of phonetic shorthand, as that invented by Sir Isaac Pitman in 1837. Included within are 12 pages of shorthand. The front page article is: "Phonography--A Beautiful Art".
Twenty pages, 5 by 7 inches, great condition.
