About the book:

The purpose of this book is to provide an introduction to the fascinating subject of the history of writing or the alphabet. In the first part, a historical sketch of the development of the non-alphabetic scripts is discussed and the second part deals with the origin and development of alphabet. More space is devoted to lesser-known problems, to those which present more interest from the standpoint of the history of writing, to the origins of some single scripts, to the connection between the various systems, and so forth, rather than deal with all the alphabets of all the modern nations of the world.
