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.

Also contains a bibliography of related items. Beautifully printed.
