This listing is ONLY for "Story of the Alphabet".

This book closes an important gap in understanding the origins of our language. In doing so, we will most surely have an improved grasp of who we are, and more importantly, where we're going. This book opens by describing the beginnings of the alphabet, there is a lengthy chapter on memory aids and picture writing, followed by one on Chinese, Japanese and Korean scripts. The cuneiform writing of the Sumerians, Babylonians and Assyrians as well as the hieroglyphics of the Egyptians are given considerable space for discussion, which isn't surprising given their importance to the origin of language. A short chapter on the peculiar letters of the Cretans, and diminutive forms found in other languages, such as the Hittites, is included followed by the concluding chapters on Greek papyri and the runes and ogam (ogham) of the Celt and Gothic peoples.
