Antique booklet titled "The Phonetic Educator: Devoted to Phonography and the Spelling Reform" edited by Elias Longley circa 1880.

This booklet is 23 pages and measures 4 3/4" x 7 3/8". There are no marks. The spine paper is partially torn at the crease.

The first issue of this magazine was printed in 1878 and was discontinued in 1885. This is Volume 2, May and June, No. 3 so this would be from around 1879. The magazine was devoted to correct spelling, good reading and speaking, rapid writing and general improvement. This method appears to have been a precursor to the shorthand system for journalists and stenographers.

Lovely old booklet for the history buff and teacher, This subject is fascinating!
