      (Hello fellow PPLers--if you're in New York, this should be an interesting
      event. I understand they will have some books from De Vinne's library, not
      to mention De Vinne's beret on display. Irene Tichenor has just finished a
      bio of De Vinne which is being published [now?] by David Godine. -Paul)

      (Please excuse cross-posting.)

      The American Printing History Association's New York Chapter is pleased to
      announce that Irene Tichenor will speak on Theodore Low De Vinne at the
      Grolier Club on June 14 at 6 p.m.

      June 14, 2005 - 6 p.m.
      Irene Tichenor
      Typography & Commerce: the Work of the De Vinne Press

      Join APHA's New York Chapter and the Grolier Club's Committee on Modern
      Fine Printing for Irene Tichenor, De Vinne biographer and former president
      of the American Printing History Association, who will speak about
      America's foremost nineteenth century printer and printing historian,
      Theodore Low De Vinne. His printing was seen in millions of American homes
      in the Century Magazine. Through his writings, practices and personal
      networks, De Vinne educated many Americans, both printer and lay, about
      printing practice and history. He authored numerous books on the practice
      of typography and printing, and he published the first modern reprint of
      the seminal printers' manual, Joseph Moxon's Mechanick Exercises, in 1896.
      He was a moving spirit behind professional organizations such as the United
      Typothetae of American (a forerunner of the Printing Industry of America)
      and social bibliophile organizations like the Grolier Club of New York.
      There will be a special display of De Vinne artifacts that evening. Join us
      for a extraordinary De Vinne evening at the Grolier Club (of which he was a
      founding member). Free and open to the public.

      The Grolier Club is located at 47 East 60th Street, New York City between
      Park and Madison Avenue.
