by Enschedé, Charles
An English translation of the original edition of 1908 in Dutch with revisions and notes by Harry Carter with the assistance of Netty Hoeflake. Edited by Lotte Hellinga. Intended as a history of the Enschedé firm, it is also a wonderful contribution to typography in general. Not only is this book an extensive history of typefoundries in the Netherlands, but it also contains various alphabets from five centuries and hundreds of ornaments, type specimens and woodcuts. Also contains a bibliography of related items. Beautifully printed.
