The fifteenth-century printing practices of Johann Zainer, Ulm, 1473-1478 by Claire Bolton( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author has brought her forty years of letterpress printing experience to the examination of the printing practices of Zainer during his first five years of operation in Ulm. The 1470s were a vital period in the development of printing? new practitioners were taking up the trade and, as they did so, adapting existing methods and developing new ones. The two-pull press was introduced during this decade in most European centres. Zainer is a particularly good choice for this examination as he was a careless printer who left many traces on his pages, traces which today would be termed printer?s errors, and which have left a rich trail for the printing detective to follow. From her discoveries about Zainer?s practices Dr Bolton has been able to track back to the work of earlier printers, as well as to compare editions printed by some of his contemporaries, thus providing new evidence and a better understanding for incunabulists and printing historians."--

John Phillips's lithographic notebook : reproduced in facsimile from the original at Oxford University Museum of Natural History by John Phillips( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost two hundred years ago the teenage John Phillips (1800-1875), who would achieve fames as a geologist, became fascinated by the emerging process of lithography. In the notebook transcribed and reproduced in facsimile here, Phillips recorded the experiments he made in the process between 1817 and 1819. The records of these experiments provide insights into the mind and working methods of a young scientist, while also revealing something about the state of lithography in Britain at the time
