Reading early American handwriting by Sperry, Kip.

ISBN: 080630846X

Where the hell has this book BEEN all my life?
Well, to be fair it wasn’t written until 1998 and I had already been trying and failing to read inscriptions and marginalia for a hell of a long time. I don’t get to do that much anymore, but basically I had given up.

This nifty book has many examples of varying styles and spelling conventions. Too bad now I wish I had a reason to buy it.
