Phonetic reform & teaching...



Item # 612648

January 1, 1859

TYPE OF THE TIMES, Cincinnati, January 1, 1859  As noted in the masthead this is: "Devoted To Education & Social Improvement". This little periodical is from a time when shorthand (invented in 1837) and phonetic spelling were popular movements. Some of the content in the back portion of this issue are printed in the Phonetic Alphabet (see photos).
Sixteen pages, 6 3/4 by 10 inches, a bit of foxing, generally very nice condition. A rare periodical.
