Description

Though titled “A Bibliography of Printing,” and indeed the main text is an alphabetical listing of books and journals pertaining to the subject, this volume is far more than that, since most entries are supplemented by substantial and informative commentaries. The commentaries not only flesh out details, but also express sound opinions about the contents. In three volumes totaling almost a thousand pages, A Bibliography of Printing has become a key resource for the study of the art.
