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

34 editions published between 1969 and 2002 in English and held by 641 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

"Herodotus was a Greek historian who was born in Halicarnassus, Caria and lived in the fifth century BC. Herodotus is often called The Father of History, as he was the first writer to collect his materials systematically and critically, and to then arrange them into a historical narrative. The Histories, the only work produced by Herodotus, is thought to be the world's first history book. The book is an investigation of the origins of the Greco-Persian Wars"- Amazon

32 editions published between 1958 and 2004 in English and German and held by 223 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 )

7 editions published between 1930 and 1954 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In writing Encomium Moriae, Erasmus wrote a satire. This satire takes the form of an oration by the goddess Folly, who is represented as declaiming from a pulpit upon the delights which await those who follow in her path. No class in the Renaissance world is spared in her harangue: kings, courtiers, authors, scholars, priests, and bishops -- all conditions of men feel the lash of her tongue. This was the Erasmian way of showing the world how it could "set itself free from its own ignorance."--Heritage Club Sandglass no. X:17
