".a valuable work.'it.remains the best history which any student entering upon the theoretical aspect of shorthand can consult'.". (DNB, quoting Pocknell) Lewis, a professional teacher of shorthand, writing, bookkeeping, and arithmetic, developed his own system of shorthand, an account of which he published anonymously in London in 1814. His system is still used by some professional shorthand writers in the high court of justice. Lewis's personal collection of 240 books on shorthand was divided after his death among the British Museum, the Bodleian, the Birmingham Free Library, and the library of Cornelius Walford. See Isaac Pitman, A History of Shorthand, pp. 87-93. Bookseller Inventory # GWIHLEWI42
