VERY GOOD book in GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, tables, diagrams, and illustrations, with appendices, bibliography and index. This book traces the development of writing and other methods of recording speech-sounds, bringing in the fascinating story of our alphabet, its merits and deficiencies and how those deficiencies have become increasingly important in modern life, leading to the devising of new and more scientific alphabets. The second part of the book surveys the history of English, following its growth from a minor Teutonic dialect to the richest and most varied of human expression.
