Eight pages of good instruction on writing and letterforms (Spencerian & Copperplate) are followed by examples and alphabets. Flourishing (birds, feathers, etc.) is next, followed by pages of 19th-Century ornamental lettering of all sorts. If you are interested in pointed pen writing, this is a great book for you.
