LETTERS REDRAWN FROM THE TRAJAN INSCRIPTION IN ROME
by Catich, Edward M.
With a three page introduction by W.A. Dwiggins followed by the text in the calligraphic handwriting of Catich. Catich has based his work on the original Trajan columns in Rome and included short critiques of the sources of these letters. Dwiggins, in his introduction, states that this work "will be a good tool in art schools - and elsewhere - for renovating standards that have become a trifle frayed in these revolutionary years. It will stimulate a return to an understanding of the true function of letters ..." His words still hold true 40 years later. First plate age yellowed as usual from cloth in case. Signed by Catich on first blank page and he has also added a presentation "to John Michael, E.M. Catich." In addition, the preface has been signed and dated by Dwiggins.
