A view of early typography up to about 1600 by Harry Carter( Book )

28 editions published between 1969 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A text on the production and use of type in the first 150 years of printing. By focusing on type, Harry Carter goes to the heart of design, the point at which the material processes of printing meet the intellectual concerns of publishers and the nature of the texts they publish. Among the topics covered are: the diversity of letterforms (blackletter, roman, italic and more); the tensions between Latin and the vernacular languages; and the establishment of standards and norms in type design. This is a facsimile of the original edition of 1969, augmented by a new introduction in which James Mosley explains the significance of the book and gives a short account of Carter's life and work

Mechanick exercises on the whole art of printing, 1683-4 by Joseph Moxon( Book )

31 editions published between 1958 and 2004 in English and German and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] has long been one of the most famous works on typography. Published in 1683-84, it was by forty years the first manual of printing in any language, covering absolutely everything that was known about printing and typography at the end of the 17th century. Still regarded as an authority on early techniques in hand-printing by historians of printing, this compendium of practical knowledge is a uniquely informative, fascinating and readable book that will interest all general readers . . . This edition reprints Moxon's text exactly with the original copperplate illustrations. -- Book cover

Moriae encomium, or, The praise of folly by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

8 editions published between 1930 and 1954 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erasmus of Rotterdam (c. 1466 1536) is one of the greatest figures of the Renaissance humanist movement, which abandoned medieval pieties in favour of a rich new vision of the individual's potential. Praise of Folly, written to amuse his friend Sir Thomas More, is Erasmus's best-known work. Its dazzling mixture of fantasy and satire is narrated by a personification of Folly, dressed as a jester, who celebrates youth, pleasure, drunkenness and sexual desire, and goes on to lambast human pretensions, foibles and frailties, to mock theologians and monks and to praise the folly' of simple Christian piety. Erasmus's wit, wordplay and wisdom made the book an instant success, but it also attracted what may have been sales-boosting criticism. - Amazon (summary for 1994 edition of this title)
