@hkz is there a complete scan of this / can you produce one?
@jeffcliff I did not search for it on the web yet. I know there are some different codes available, but not sure about this. Alas, making a scan of a book in the hundred of pages is beyond my capabilities now.
That is so cool. I knew nothing about their abbreviations code. Anything else worthy of mention about how they transmitted messages?
@RussSharek the book spends no pages on the technology behind it, detailing only the code. The interesting part is the list of goods that have a specific codeword assigned. Goes even to give one to "dog biscuits".
I am away from the place where I store my books for the week, but can take a few more photos in a few days
I'd love to see it. Maybe scans of the whole book can go up to archive.org?
@hkz holy shit this needs to be digitized, does archive.org have a copy yet
@eqe This specific edition doesn't seem to be available, but earlier and subsequent editions are. See http://cryptiana.web.fc2.com/code/telegraph2.htm#SEC6 ABC5 from 1901
