SCHRIFTPROBE ... OFFIZIN POESCHEL & TREPTE.
by Poeschel & Trepte.
Wing 3027; not in ATF. Type specimen book of the well-known German printer and publisher Poeschel & Trepte. Thirty faces with variants for hand composition, and thirty-two for machine composition (Monotype or "Typograph"). Specimens are lines and text, with occasional sample compositions. There are twelve photographs of composing and printing processes; these have no captions but presumably show operations at P&T. A well-designed and modern-looking specimen book with attractive specimens, as one would expect from a firm known for its involvement in fine printing in Germany. Minor foxing of covers.
