ABOUT







Henry Dean

American calligrapher, 1788-1849. He wrote Dean's Analytical Guide. Containing A Variety of Plates in which are exhibited A Complete System of Practical Penmanship (1805, second edition 1808), a calligraphic primer containing many alphabets. In 2007, Jane Rodgers Siegel writes in APHA, vol. 163: The 1805 first edition of Henry Dean's Analytical Guide is the first ambitious American handwriting manual, a handsome quarto of 56 pages and 18 engraved plates. It may be of interest that Dean, as Nash tells us, not only was a writing master, teacher, and bookkeeper (writing and arithmetic, the two skills needed for com- merce, went hand in hand for centuries), but also had run a copperplate printing business in Salem, Mass.
