About this Item: Elkin Mathews LTD, 1925. Hardcover. Condition: Collectible: Very Good. First Edition, thus. LIMITED EDITION of 310 copies, this is number 14, printed on Van Gelder watermarked paper. Small 4to. 8 1/2 x 6 5/8 inches. [x], 57, [1 blank] pp. Bibliography; text clean, unmarked. Orange paper over boards, spine titled in black; binding square and tight, spine faded. Handsome Greek-influenced bookplate of Francis Howard Fobes on front paste-down. Very Good. Giambattista Bodoni was an Italian typographer, type-designer, compositor, printer, and publisher, based in Parma. Inspired by Pierre Simon Fournier and John Baskerville, Bodoni and Firmin Didot evolved a style of type called "New Face," in which the letters are cut to produce a strong contrast between the thick and thin parts of their body. Bodoni designed many type faces, each one in a large range of sizes; the range of sizes enabled him to compose his pages with the greatest possible subtlety of spacing. After his death, Bodoni's widow published Il Manuale Tipografico, presenting 373 characters, 34 Greek and 48 Oriental or exotic type faces. Harold Vincent Marrot (1898-1954) was an English student of typography who wrote on Bodoni, Bulmer and others; this work was written with the help and advice of Stanley Morison. PROVENANCE: Francis Howard Fobes (1881-1957) was Professor of Greek at Amherst College. Seller Inventory # CH814-117
