♥ Book Title : A Catalogue of Nineteenth Century Printing Presses
☯ Full Synopsis : "This work provides more than 480 contemporary woodcuts and engravings illustrating the printing presses of the 19th century, often taken from manufacturer's catalogues and advertisements. A final chapter contains illustrations of supplementary printing equipment of the period. The presses include the One Dollar Printing Press - for the boys who simply wish to print cards, the Union Rotary Press - powerful and rapid, yet readily understood and run even by a lad of ten, and Geo W. Hunt's Superior Job Printing Press, whose automatic brayer and ink throw-off are in themselves a sufficient recommendation to ensure its popularity amongst intelligent printers. The illustrations and descriptions illuminate the advances in print technology over the century, and together form a comprehensive resource for any print or publishing historian, or collector of industrial equipment."Article| Harold E.

♥ Book Title : Studies in Fifteenth-Century Printing
☯ Full Synopsis : "The work of George D. Painter on incunabula and early printing needs no introduction. Ranging from Gutenberg and Caxton to the first printing in France and Spain, the author has done much to illuminate the tangled history of the earliest editions of some of the rarest and most attractive books in European printing. The articles reprinted here feature a number of studies which have become classics in their field. The author’s investigation of Gutenberg’s early work represents a major contribution to the age-old controversy surrounding the invention of printing. Similarly, his studies on Caxton have helped to clarify the date and development of the work of England’s first printer. Also included is his celebrated essay on the most outstanding illustrated book from the fifteenth century, Aldus Manutius’ edition of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili There is a preface by Dennis E. Rhodes."Article| George Duncan Painter| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : A Century for the Century
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Here are the hundred greatest printed books of the twentieth century. Given another pair of editors, you'd probably be offered a different list, but this one serves and serves well, for it concentrates not only on the recognized chestnuts, but also lesser-known, and often exceedingly recherche volumes that have left their mark. It is noteworthy that only two books in the survey were printed by offset; the rest are all letterpress." "This survey, while admittedly neither comprehensive nor definitive, provides an overview of fine printing over the past hundred years. Despite Morison's contention that typography is the most conservative of all the arts, the forms, designs, and techniques of book production continue to mutate, evolve, and advance. If we are to overcome the complexities of a digital age, we would do well to appreciate, if not embrace, the heritage so convincingly presented on these pages."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
