Thanks for the response. The ampersands are nice, but... Goudy drew an
interesting series of ampersands for "Diggings" that showed the
historical development of the ampersand. The same volume I think has a
serious essay by Lehmann-Haupt and one or two other things. Most of
the contributions were mock-serious or comic. The early Typophiles
books in the 1930s, all rather rare, are assemblages from different
printers, on different stock. I think there were 120 copies of
"Diggings." I'm certain there's a copy at Rochester Institute of
Technology's Cary Collection. (Heck, the Cary Collection may even have
Goudy's engravings for the ampersands.) The early Typophile books are
quite often a lot of fun. The Typophiles bibliography is online (not
complete) here: http://www.typophiles.org/fsbibliography.html
Their most important book is probably Janet Ing, _Johann Gutenberg and
his Bible_ (1988, still in print). My favorite is the 2-vol Knopf book
of writings from the 1950s (o.p.). Oak Knoll distributes for them.
Sorry to fall into "Reference Librarian" mode.
