Stenography compleated, or the art of short-hand brought to perfection; being the most easy, exact, speedy, and legible method extant: whereby can be joined in every sentence, at least two, three, four, five, six, seven, or more words together in one, without taking off ye pen, in ye twinkling of an eye; and that by the signs of the English moods, tenses, persons, particles, &c never before invented. By this new method any, who can but tolerably write their names in round-hand, may with ease (by this book alone without any teacher) take down from ye speaker's mouth, any sermon speech, trial, play, &c. word by word, though they know nothing of Latin. And may likewise read one another's writing distinctly. be it ever so long after it is written: to perform these by any other short-hand method extant, is utterly impossible; as is evident from ye books themselves. The nature, use, and excellency hereof, are more fully contained in the preface. Compos'd by James Weston, the only author and professor of this new method
