Pernin's Universal Phonography in Ten Lessons : The Simplest, Most Legible and Rapid Shorthand Method in the World, and the Only Strictly Phonetic, Light-Line, Non-Position and Connective Vowel System in Use (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Pernin's Universal Phonography in Ten Lessons: The Simplest, Most Legible and Rapid Shorthand Method in the World, and the Only Strictly Phonetic, Light-Line, Non-Position and Connective Vowel System in Use It is a little more than three years since the last edition of several thousand copies of the Pernin shorthand method was given to the public. Previous to that time, although two small editions of the work had been printed, there were few if any practical writers of the system. This was due principally to the fact that no effort had been made to teach or introduce it. N ow the Pernin stenographers are to be found in every State in the Union, and all are active and enthusiastic agents in making its unrivalled merits known to their friends and acquaintances. The very remarkable success which the system has attained in this brief period of time, while yet in its earliest infancy, has proved that the public demand for a simple, legible and practical method has been fully met. This success is all the more noticeable, as owing to the author's continued ill-health since the publication of the Third Edition, but comparatively little could be done to place the work before the public. It was not even given to the booksellers, the great bulk of the orders coming direct to the author. In spite of the drawback above cited, and in the face of misrepresentation and prejudice from rival interests. On the strength of its superior merits alone, it has steadily worked its way into public favor, finding its way unsolicited into many of the leading Schools and Colleges of the country, and winning golden opinions from writers of the old-time complicated systems who were fair enough to give it a candid investigation. In many instances they have become its most ardent supporters. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
