The best part of that was the ad for Underwood's Ribbons.
Very neat booklet. Thanks for sharing!

WOW! This is amazing.

Having said that, I love the language. The term 'Absurdity' being used in earnestness seems to be, well.... absurd in our modern context.

Great find!

Very cool! My earliest is from the 30's. I love the Santa Maria rendering and agree I always love the language.

Very nice book. Scott picked up on absurdity and its over use like today with ongoing instead of continuing or continuous and absolutely being over used.

I leave absolutely appreciating the book. It is really nice.

I agree with Ken. I really liked the design for the Underwood ribbons as well!
