ABOUT







Lyman P. Spencer

Son of Platt Rogers Spencer, one of the most famous American penmen, 1800-1864. Lyman was born in 1840 and fought in the Civil War. In 1876, Lyman Spencer and Henry Flickinger (b. Ickesburg, PA, 1845), both among the finest penmen of their age, wrote New Spencerian Compendium of Penmanship (1879), which continued to explain the Spencerian system of penmanship that originated with Lyman's father, Platt Rogers Spencer. In Spencerian Script and Ornamental Penmanship, Volume I (1989), by Michael R. Sull, we find an extensive biography. Lyman Spencer died in 1915.

Images from the 1879 book: Capital exercises, Construction of roman letters, Free italic, French round hand, Half Block or Egyptian, Italian Script, Morse, Old English, Spencerian Ladies Hand, Spencerian Medium Hand.
