Directions to servants by Jonathan Swift( Book )

24 editions published between 1959 and 1989 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Directions to Servants takes the form of a handbook of manners, addressed to each servant in turn, and depicting what must be the ultimate upstairs/downstairs battle. With scathing wit, Swift pits master against servant in an endless struggle for order, frugality and the best bits of the roast. Written in the author's final years of sanity, Directions of Servants is a last hilarious outpouring of cynicism at a lifetime's accumulation of poor service."--Jacket

Mechanick exercises on the whole art of printing, 1683-4 by Joseph Moxon( Book )

37 editions published between 1958 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 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
