Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in Pitman’s Shorthand

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in Pitman’s Shorthand  with illustrations by John Tenniel.

Intermediate stage of Pitman’s Shorthand.

New Era Edition. Published by Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons. I’m not sure of the year, but obviously pre-1971 as the price is given as 3/6.

Small paperback.

Does what it says on the tin- Alice translated into Pitman shorthand. According to wiki:

Pitman shorthand is a system of shorthand for the English language developed by Englishman Sir Isaac Pitman (1813–1897), who first presented it in 1837. Like most systems of shorthand, it is a phonetic system; the symbols do not represent letters, but rather sounds, and words are, for the most part, written as they are spoken. As of 1996, Pitman shorthand was the most popular shorthand system used in the United Kingdom and the second most popular in the United States.

This shorthand translation was first published in the American Edition of Pitman’s Journal, so apparently there are some pronunciation differences- explained in a paragraph on the first page.

Available on Amazon: Pitman’s Alice
