Description

The Reverend C. H. O. Daniel (1836–1919) had a natural eye for typography and book design, and also had the great good fortune in the 1870s to discover at the Clarendon Press an unused font of type donated nearly two centuries earlier to the university by Dr. John Fell. Beginning in 1877, Daniel printed using the Fell types a number of beautiful editions of important but obscure early texts, including this edition of an Elizabethan translation of the idylls of Theocritus.
