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 620 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 )

26 editions published between 1958 and 1978 in English and German and held by 213 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
