Despite its condition, this is still a beautiful instructional book on the dying art of penmanship. This book describes in detail how to write in cursive, as well as how to draw some figures, especially animals, with the knowledge of the proper strokes. Definitely an excellent addition to the collection of anyone interested in penmanship.
