Synopsis: First edition. Over 200 illustrations. An important book. Chappell has added a nice presentation to this copy using the dedication page which reads "To my friend s Alfred A. Knopf & Will, Jan 9, 1973, Warren Chappell" in which he has added to text to the original dedication. Loosely inserted in this copy is a T.L.s. from a collector to Terry Belanger who has annotated the letter asking him the location of the original manuscript of this book as he thinks there is an error in the very last paragraph of the book. A few small closed tears along edges of jacket. xviii, 255, xv, v pages. cloth, dust jacket.. 8vo..

Book Description Alfred A Knopf-New York Times, New York, 1970. Black & Rust Cloth Gilt Titles. Condition: Tres Bien-very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair-worn. First Edition. A Short History of the Printed Word; 280 pages; First Edition. 244 pp + Index, 9 9/16" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "(A) book that will inform the layman and give pleasure to the typophile. In it the aesthetic and technical considerations basic to the art and process of printing, from the earliest formulation of the letters of the alphabet to recent developments in twentieth-century graphic technology, are made clear through a lucid and lively narrative interspersed with more than 200 pertinent illustrations - calligraphy, typefaces, great books and their pages, presses and workshops - all carefully chosen and fitted into the text. Here is the evolution of the printing press - the ingenious and imaginative contributions of the great printers. And always the interaction between printing and the society and culture in which it grew. Printing & Publishing. Seller Inventory # 010942
