If you purchase an item from me, my goal is to mail it on the day after payment is received. I welcome any and all questions, and if I have an item you are looking for I will find it and list it.??And, if you live in the Spokane, WA. area free delivery can be arranged but it would be based on our schedule of visits to the area. Thank you for coming by.??????

Fritz-Eldridge Expert Typing

A Complete Course In Touch Typewriting, Consisting of Forty Carefully Graded Lessons


Rose L. Fritz and Edward H. Eldridge, PH.D.

Copyright 1912

American Book Company, New York, Cincinnati, Chicago

181 pages.  Pages are single sided: you work through the first 90 pages, then turn the book over and work through the next 90 pages.  So, the backside of page one is the last page, 181.

This is "A Complete Course In Touch Typewriting, consisting of Forty Carefully Graded Lessons." (not a revised edition)

Book covers are partially blackened, possibly from smoke damage. Cover is loose but still held by the string binding. There are some water marks and some page wrinkle. Some pages have pencil marks made by the student.

A pocket, inside front cover, is formed by a piece of glued-down grocery-sack-type of brown paper, there are some writings on this paper. Inside the pocket and also found inside the book, were the following pieces of misc. paper:

1. A grocery store list from Kellogg Grocery. Notice the date in upper right corner, from May 22, 192.. , the year was not filled in.

2.   Two pencil drawings, one of a coffee cup/saucer combo, and the other of a sugar bowl. On the backside of one is the city name of Kellogg, Idaho, November 28, 1923.

3. A 3x8 typed piece of paper with all the characters a particular typewriter had; a note at bottom says "this is a specimen of this machine and these are its separate characters."

4. An 11-inch long, single newspaper column of want ads. Ads for men or woman, with pay from $10 daily, $25 weekly, and even a $5,000 yearly commission. Job listed such as Lady Barber; selling Guaranteed Waterproof Aprons; selling ladies silk and muslin underwear, and others.

5. A small piece of newspaper with just bits of a story on it. Story is headlined as "Grand Jury and House Committee Tackle Charges Made in Chicago." Subpoenas were issued for an Attorney General, another attorney, and a former Dept. Of Justice agent.

6. A small white envelope, blank.

7. A piece of paper with another drawing of a Sugar Bowl, with a hand written note on the back, can only read some of the words.

8. A class curriculum paper, from Behnke-Walker, which was probably the name of a school. It shows list of classes, and is marked as to time of day when this student was in those classrooms.
