"The first complete printing and publication of an unique collection of 23 alphabets of wood-engraved ornamented letters in the collection of the St Bride Printing Library, London; with two additional alphabets. The letters were engraved by hand in the 1820s as patterns from which metal stereotypes could be made for sale to poster-printers. They are here printed from the original wood-blocks on the hand presses at I. M. Imprimit. The Introduction is written by James Mosley, Librarian of the St Bride Printing Library and the custodian of Pouchée’s wood-engraved alphabets. Mosley is the acknowleged world expert on the history of printing and type design. The text tells the full story of Pouchée’s activities as a type founder and the historyof ornamentation in type design as developments in type-casting and the newly-developed iron presses enabled increasingly bigger posters to be printed. The text is illustrated by many previously un-reproduced type specimens, printed actual size"--Publisher's description

The late Justin Howes looks at the eighteenth-century belief in the necessity of perfection in type and printing. Eric Kindel discusses a nineteenth-century scheme for univeral letters.

A view of early typography up to about 1600 by Harry Carter( Book )

11 editions published between 1969 and 2002 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A text on the production and use of type in the first 150 years of printing. By focusing on type, Harry Carter goes to the heart of design, the point at which the material processes of printing meet the intellectual concerns of publishers and the nature of the texts they publish. Among the topics covered are: the diversity of letterforms (blackletter, roman, italic and more); the tensions between Latin and the vernacular languages; and the establishment of standards and norms in type design. This is a facsimile of the original edition of 1969, augmented by a new introduction in which James Mosley explains the significance of the book and gives a short account of Carter's life and work
