The Braille Review, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Braille Review, Vol. 2At this season of the year even the best of us feel the need of making good resolutions, and we think no brighter resolve can be made, provided of course it is carried out, than to take up the study of Braille, with a view of supplying good literature for a class who to a great extent are debarred from the great consolation of books.To many who have not entered this fascinating domain, the time and patience necessary in order to deal with some large standard work, has appeared sufficient excuse for not commencing. But such persons need not despair of being able to help in this good work. For beginners and those of limited leisure the Draining of short articles, &c., from all kinds of periodical literature confers an inestimable boon on a large number of the Blind who have to spend a large part of their lives in earning their daily bread, but who may now and again find a break in the "daily round, the common task," when a short extract in Braille adds a new pleasure to their dark lives.In the United Kingdom there are a very large number of Schools and Workshops which are always glad to receive Gifts of Braille pamphlets for distribution. Then there are the Horne Teaching Societies one of which may be found in every large town, the main object of which is to visit the Blind at their own homes and teach gratuitously all who are able and willing to read in embossed type. To the Colporteurs and Scripture Readers of these Societies a few Braille pamphlets for free distribution to those they are endeavouring to teach to read, acts often as an incentive to higher things. To any who may be at a loss as to where they might send the Braille sheets when copied, we may state that the British & Foreign Blind Association is always glad to have these bound up and sent as free grants to these Societies many of whom are too poor to go to the expense of buying books in order to form a Library.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
