This specimen book details samples of the R.H. Stevens & Co. faces, borders, and symbols. The type specimen book and catalogue of printing materials from R.H. Stevens, who succeeded V. & F. Figgins in 1907, a firm originally founded in 1792, and later carried on as Stevens, Shanks & Sons.

Cover completely missing (front, spine, rear). Some chipping, but overall text block beautiful and intact. Bumped at bottom of spine. Price list dated 1912 tipped-in.
