This book The History of Writing was a present from my husband - he bought it online and the previous owner lives in Texas! It's a nineteenth century English publication exploring systems of writing. It's actually the 'proof copy' of the book and shows the author's corrections on it. At the end of the book he speculates on the future of writing systems and communication.
