I recently purchased a copy of "Gregg Handwriting" (1931, by John Robert Gregg and Mary Louise Champion). This copy was published by the Gregg Publishing Company Ltd. in London, but presents a totally American-style cursive handwriting (in the tradition of Spencer, Palmer, Zaner-Bloser, etc.) Addresses in later samples are British, and prices in pounds.
Now I'm curious if this book was issued in both an American and British edition? I suppose so, but if anyone else has the book it would be interesting to confirm that. (Someone at one time said they had it, but I can't remember who).
It's also interesting that the Gregg Company didn't continue to market handwriting texts, and that continued to be a viable textbook market, and it seems compatible with shorthand.
