18 editions published between 1958 and 1991 in English and German and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] has long been one of the most famous works on typography. Published in 1683-84, it was by forty years the first manual of printing in any language, covering absolutely everything that was known about printing and typography at the end of the 17th century. Still regarded as an authority on early techniques in hand-printing by historians of printing, this compendium of practical knowledge is a uniquely informative, fascinating and readable book that will interest all general readers . . . This edition reprints Moxon's text exactly with the original copperplate illustrations. -- Book cover
