Story of the Alphabet 1938

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.
