Book Description Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. 240 pages. Scholars have been too quick to abandon their efforts to identify the types used by Elizabethan printers. Differences among letter forms do exist, and do sort themselves out into recognizable patterns bt which families of types can be identified and, within the families, individual founts and their owners singled out. The most widely used type face was roman, which during the second half of the 16th century replaced blackletter as the standard face in English books. The most widely used size of type was pica. The book starts in the early 1550s, when punchcutters first came to England. It end at 1610, for soon after that date the shops were flooded with the new Dutch faces which gave an entirely different appearance to later 17th century printing. Professor Ferguson illustrates his arguments with facsimiles, tables and line drawings of Elizabethan letter-forms, to show the reader how the types of this once common size and face are differentiated. Such information is of invaluable use in pusuing a number of problems facing the student of Elizabethan texts. Size: 2.5 x 21 x 29.8 cm. 240 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
