Limited to 200 numbered copies and contains two original leaves (4 pages) printed in 1591 by David Sartorius in Ingolstadt of his Disputationes. Retired Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Professor Herbert H. Johnson has written the foreword as well as provided the leaves from an incomplete volume in his impressive collection of rare books. The scholarly text, written by noted type historian and book designer Mark Argetsinger, explores how the types of French masters such as Claude Garamond came to be used in Sartorius printing house in southern Germany. The peregrinations of early French types is a subject that deserves more study, and this book will be of interest to all those concerned with the history of the book, history of typography, descriptive bibliography, and printing of the Counter-Reformation.
