A discourse on the use of the pen : Containing observations on writing in general: the proper posture in sitting to write: rules for choosing quills, and making of pens for different hands, (proving that the common methods of sitting to write, and nibbing the pen, obstruct the freedom of writing:) with whatever else may tend to perfection in that art. Necessary not only for teachers of writing, but for all persons concerned in business. To which are added, two alphabetical sets of copies suited to a quarto writing-book, on the rule of life, and moral definitions. By William Leekey, writing-master
