momma2three Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 I've been reading the teacher's guide for the 19th century "Eclectic" textbooks, and it's interesting. It caught my eye that there was a penmanship series. I can find the teacher's guide easily on Google Books, but it came to my attention that there were 9 copy books, too. I can't find these online anywhere, and I'd love to see them: I love old handwriting. I also find it very interesting that after book #4, there are separate copy books for boys and girls. The description says that everything between the two is the same, except that the one for the girls encourages smaller writing. (Here is the Eclectic Manual of Methods, and Here is the handwriting manual, if anyone wanted to see them) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
