NPWHF0761 - Pitman's Shorthand Instructor Book
The book was developed by Englishman Sir Isaac Pitman [1813-1897]. Like most systems of shorthand, it is a phonetic system; the symbols do not represent letters, but rather sounds. It contents directions to the students, the alphabet, some exercises and vocalization of double consonants. The book is covered in a black contact-like material.
