B4193. Theory of Spencerian Script + Copybooks
B4193 Theory of Spencerian Script by Platt R. Spencer. (1874) 1985. 182pp (total). 7"x8.5". Paper.

The instructional book explains how all the letters can be made gracefully and rapidly using various combinations of a few basic pen strokes. It explains Spencer's philosophy of teaching principles that engage the mind as well as the hand. It also details his methods for teaching classes of children. One of these is having the children write rhythmically, in concert, as the teacher counts. The power of this method is being rediscovered today.

Set contains Theory Book and five copybooks:
Book 1 Introduces all the short letters. Only four strokes, or principles, as Spencer called them, are needed to produce these letters.
Book 2: Adds some of the tall letters - t and d - and the numerals 1-9.
Book 3: Completes the lower-case alphabet and introduces most of the capitals.
Book 4: Completes the capital alphabet and provides practice on all the letters as they appear in words.
Book 5: Presents sentences and sayings for writing practice. Examples: Kind words can never die. Promise little and do much.
