Arab culture and Ottoman magnificence in Antwerp's Golden Age by Alastair Hamilton( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fine, engraved images of the Ottoman Turkish court, splendid atlases. popular editions of travellers' tales, major works of orientalist scholarship - all are represented in Alastair Hamilton's illustrated account of Antwerp's place in the European drive to define and comprehend her eastern neighbours." "The inspiration for this book are the holdings of two great collections: the specialised private collection of The Arcadian Library in London: and the world famous Plantin-Moretus Museum with the Stedelijk Prentenkabinet in Antwerp. Together with significant loans from other major European institutions, these books and engravings have been put on display in Antwerp in an exhibition of the same title."--Jacket
Early type specimens in the Plantin-Moretus Museum : annotated descriptions of the specimens to ca. 1850 (mostly from the Low Countries and France) with preliminary notes on the typefoundries and printing offices by John A Lane( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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, Gille, Didot and many other masters from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. Since the Plantin-Moretus printing office acquired most of the 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 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 a powerful reference tool for type specimen enthusiast and printing historians."--BOOK JACKET
