      from Holland, Belgium and France) andtheir innovated styles from the 17th
      to the mid 19th centuries. Its extensive indexes make this work a powerful
      reference tool for type enthusiasts and printing historians.

      NINETEENTH-CENTURY PRINTING PRACTICES AND THE IRON HANDPRESS
      By Richard-Gabriel Rummonds

      First edition. Nineteenth-Century Printing Practices and the Iron Handpress
      is encyclopedic in its examination of printing techniques from the
      late-seventeenth-century through the nineteenth-century. Using selected
      readings from printers’ manuals - beginning with Joseph Moxon’s Mechanick
      Exercises on the Whole Art of Printing, 1683, and culminating with John
      Southward’s Practical Printing, 1900 - Gabriel Rummonds has distilled over
      two hundred years of printers’ wisdom into this very readable and important
      work on iron handpresses and how they were used in the nineteenth century.
      This remarkable work represents over twenty years of research and
      scholarship by one of the most celebrated fine press printers of the
      twentieth-century. With almost five hundred rare and scarce wood cuts,
      engravings and photographs, and the most comprehensive annotated
      bibliography on the subject ever printed, this monumental, two-volume work
      stands alone in the annals of printing history. Nineteenth-Century Printing
      Practices and the Iron Handpress is a worthy companion to Rummonds’ 1998
      classic, Printing on the Iron Handpress. Co-published with The British
      Library. Sales Rights: (hardcover) Worldwide except the UK; available in
      the UK from The British Library - (paperback) Worldwide.

      EARLY TYPE SPECIMENS IN THE PLANTIN-MORETUS MUSEUM
      By John Lane

      First edition. The Plantin-Moretus Museum has one of the world's richest
      collections of type specimens, many surviving nowhere else. They include
      types by Garamont, Granjon, Van den Keere, Briot, Van Dyck, Kis, Fournier,
      Rosart, Gillé, Didot and many other masters from the fifteenth to the
      nineteenth century. Since the Plantin-Moretus printing office acquired most
      of the type specimens when new, moreover, the collection as a whole tells a
      story in a way that collections assembled piecemeal in the nineteenth and
      twentieth centuries cannot. Finally, the Museum's extraordinary archives
      help to document the origins of many specimens.
      This first detailed catalogue of the Museum's specimens reports the
      styles and sizes of type shown, describes the structures and paper stocks,
      notes relations with other specimens in the collection and elsewhere, and
      provides references to literature on many of the individual types shown.
      Preliminary notes on the type founders and printers who issued the
      specimens include chronologies of the foundries and information on the
      origins of their materials, sometimes supplemented with information about
      the history of the firms and the genealogy of the founders. Nearly all of
      the nineteen specimens illustrated at their original size appear here for
      the first time, and extensive indexes make this book an important reference
      tool for type specimen enthusiasts and printing historians. Published in
      association with the Plantin-Moretus Museum & The British Library. Sales
      Rights: Worldwide except the UK; available in the UK from The British Library.
