Title: The Shorthand of Charles Dickens
Date of publication: 23 Dec. 2021
ISBN-13 : 979-8789353547
At the age of sixteen Charles Dickens decided to learn the Brachygraphy shorthand and trained himself to write shorter and faster. That it poses many difficulties can be read in his novel David Copperfield where the main character is frustrated by applying shorthand.
The first part of this book shows a summary of shorthand and universal language in general and the second part shows the Gurney shorthand system by text examples. Then some of the examples of shorthand notes and letters by Dickens are shown and dissected into their separate syllables.

Amadi was probably a cipher teacher at the Council of Ten and Agostino Amadi wrote a large manuscript on Venetian ciphers, divided in ten volumes, that was acquired in 1588 by the Inquisitori di Stato in Venice under the title of “Codice Amadi, Trattato delle cifre”.
The Amadi manuscript was kept secret for hundreds of years and is now published for the first time with the Venetian ciphers of the 16th century.
This volume 1 is published in two languages: Italian and English. The original Italian handwritten text was firstly transcribed and translated by Marco Ponzi into modern Italian and then translated into English. In the first Volume, more than 80 different ciphering methods are discussed together with diagrams, tables, symbolic images, with every cipher method containing one or more examples. These are all thoroughly investigated, checked and, where necessary, adjusted, with the addition of comments.
The Venetian Ciphers of Agostino Amadi: Volume 2, English version
In this second volume, eighteen ciphers are presented and then analyzed and discussed:
transposition cipher, veiled cipher, line cipher, superfluous cipher, symbol cipher, foreign cipher, 12-letter cipher, cipher with 20 symbols, cipher with 3 alphabets, Oedipus cipher, Ticiano cipher, queen cipher, babuini cipher, babuini cipher with squares and the Spanish cipher.
The examples reflect and reveal the Venetian cipher techniques of the 16th century, and these are thoroughly investigated and shown with the addition of comments and historical references.
