Learning sign language
(ABC). Alphabet des Sourds-Muets. Véritable manière d'apprendre en une heure à converser avec les Sourds-Muets de tous les pays civilisés, aussi promptement que la parole même. No place, no date. (c. 1850). Illustrated broadsheet (22 x 27,5 cm) showing the alphabet signs for the sign alphabet within an elaborate border with above the alphabet two hands holding each other. Sign language for the deaf was first systematized in France during the 18th century by Abbot Charles-Michel l'Epée. A charming piece.
