PHONOGRAPHY.

* * * * *

A BRIEF AND LEGIBLE SYSTEM OF SHORTHAND.

* * * * *

Those unacquainted with Phonography can not readily appreciate the ease with which it may be mastered, and the delight incidental to the unfolding of its principles. “Fascinating” is the word used in describing it by every one who has studied the art.  The text-books have been so arranged and simplified that Self-instruction is a positive pleasure and recreation and has been successfully accomplished in thousands of instances.

TEACHERS should learn Phonography, not only that they may be possessed of the enormous advantage of being able to write five times as fast as by the ordinary method, but that they may be able to teach the art.  Phonography is rapidly finding its way into the Public Schools, and the demand for teachers of the regular branches who can also teach Phonography is now far in advance of the supply.

THE MANUAL OF PHONOGRAPHY. [200th Thousand.] By BENN PITMAN and JEROME B. HOWARD.  This work is designed for self-instruction in the phonographic art and is the proper book for the beginner.  It contains a complete exposition of the system, from its simplest principles to the Reporting Style, arranged in alternate and opposite pages of explanation and phonographic exercises.  Every principle is copiously illustrated with engraved examples for reading, and exercises in the ordinary type for writing practice.  A large number of pages of engraved reading matter are included in the book.  Boards, 80c.; Extra cloth, $1.00.

For sale by all booksellers, or sent post-paid by us on receipt of price.  Complete catalog of other aids to the study of Phonography, free.
