Both by historical research and contemporary example the development of letters and typefaces is presented as a continuous story from earliest times, through the work of the Italian calligraphers such as Arrighi and Palatino and the Venetian printers, Jenson and Aldus, up to the present day. Condition: Ex-Libris sticker to front pastedown. Previous owner’s tipped in bookplate to front endpaper, otherwise very good.
