Robert Proctor (1868–1903)
The Printing of Greek in the Fifteenth Century.
The Bibliographical Society
No less an authority than Nicolas Barker has called Robert Proctor “the greatest student of Greek typography of the last century, a man imbued with the revolutionary zeal of William Morris.” The summary of Proctor’s knowledge of early Greek typefaces is presented in this comprehensive book. Proctor felt the Aldine style set the study of Greek back generations, yet it was the Aldine model that was followed in the overwhelming majority of Greek types for centuries to come, from Garamond to the twentieth century.
