About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Alphabets Numerals and Devices of the Middle Ages by Shaw, Henry.

Description:

4to. (11 by 7.5 inches, 28 by 19 cm.) 48 plates, 29 colored, 11 of which are hand-colored. 2 pp preface by Shaw, followed by 2 pp list of plates, giving source, date and sometimes other information. The book was published during a period of ferment in printing technology, with the advent of chromolithography, and thus we have plates colored in two different manners. As with everything that written or published by Shaw, the work was a standard both on Medieval culture and on the more specific topic treated therein, and works on typography that followed inevitably borrowed from this work. Over and above the outright use of the decorative letters rendered in the plates, a perusal of the samples should give a sense of the boundless variety of decoration simple letters can inspire even within the seemingly narrow vocabulary of Gothic ornamentation, or put another way, our narrowest understanding of the Gothic. The plates of this copy are clean other than a faint, shallow and inconspicuous impress stamp that is in the corner of a few of the plates. (The stamp is so faint all that one can really make out is the date of 1845 impressed.) Rebacked in blue cloth that is a close match to the blue boards. Some light shelfwear to the cloth.
