About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for German Incunabula in the British Museum by Morison, Stanley.

Description:

Folio. (vi), 26pp., + (152)ff. facsimile plates. Reissue of the 1928 first edition, published by Victor Gollancz. With "one hundred & fifty-two facsimile plates of fine book-pages from presses of Germany, German-Switzerland and Austria-Hungary," printed in black and red. Morison, a British typographer and designer, served as a consultant with the Monotype Corporation from 1923 to 1967 and is perhaps most notable for his commission of the Times New Roman typeface in 1931. In the 1920s and 1930s, when this volume was first compiled, his work was primarily focused on researching and adapting historical typefaces. In the Introduction, he writes, "The rapid progress of the so-called 'Roman' type, first in scientific and cultural works and finally in newspapers, is an indication that there is no future even in Germany for her traditional type form. It would be lamentable if, as a result of disuse, the noble letter of the Gutenberg Bible were to lack admirers in the present day." Bound in cream cloth decorated in black. Fine. (Cleverdon E180).
