Story of the Alphabet 1912


Writing began as a pictorial record, then the pictures became representations of an idea and writing became symbolic. In the final stages of its evolution, the symbols represented a sound. This evolution is set forth within this volume, with emphasis on the common primitive forms and concepts from which the modern alphabet have been derived. With 90 illustrations.

The book was digitalised in the djvu format. Free reader and more info on this format here:
