About this Item

First edition, portfolio consisting of an octavo volume of text, pp. [10], 44; and a suite of 93 folio plates of letters; near fine copy with a few folio plates bumped; in matching terracotta cloth slipcase. The text was printed from calligraphy by Catich, "using a semiformal hand called Petrarch" made with a "snipped fountain pen." The inscription cut on the base of the Trajan column in Rome "is generally regarded as the finest existing example of the work of the best period of Roman monumental lettering." The preface is by W.A. Dwiggins. Bookseller Inventory # 48644
