This book provides a collection of standard alphabet forms, arranged for convenient use. The alphabets are primarily intended to exhibit letter shapes, and have been arranged to show how the letters compose into words (except in instances where they are to be used only as initials). The application of classical and medieval letters to modern usages is suggested throughout the book, as modern designs are included in which similar forms are employed. Chapters are broken down into Roman capitals, modern Roman letters, gothic letters, Italian and script, and to the beginner. The book is primarily composed of illustrated examples, with supplemental text interspersed throughout. Also included is an index.
