Two volumes, complete. Red cloth over boards with gilt spine titles, 18 by 14.5 cm, not paginated. Very good with light sun fading on the spines and a previous owner’s name and date on the ffep (Terry Belanger again, 1973). Originally published in 1824, this important early printing manual was reprinted by Gregg in a much reduced format, with two pages of the Typographia printed on each page of this set – tiny, but still legible. Useful for its extensive early history of the subject.
