First edition, 4to, pp. viii, 203 leaves, printed from typescript on rectos only; keyboard illustrations, tables; ca. 1968-74 native Vietnamese full blue cloth, gilt lettering on spine; near fine copy. "Since 1947, most typewriters imported into Viet-Nam have been equipped with Franco-Vietnamese keyboards. Also, most typewriters imported with French keyboards have been converted to Franco-Vietnamese keyboards. However, Franco-Vietnamese keyboards have important inadequacies for the typing of Vietnamese ... The preliminary purpose of this study was to design a typewriter which would be best for the typing of Vietnamese. A secondary purpose was the collection and presentation of data needed by the Government should it decide to make the typewriter designed by the study the Standard Vietnamese Typewriter" - p. [2]. A Vietnamese translation was published the same year. Item #40565
