Cloth, gilt cover decoration, 4to, 26 cm, xiv, 89 pp, portrait, facs, music. From the blurb: "Pierre Simon Fournier ("le jeune") lived a mere 56 years (1712-1768) yet became the most outstanding typographic artist of his age. Fournier's genius lay in his ability to modernise the traditional letter forms, his type comprising the first of the "transitionals" between "old face" and "modern". His italics are considered to be his masterpiece and his printers' flowers, ornaments and decorated types still delight us. Only three years after his reception as a master typefounder his talents became apparent when he published his Modèles des Caractères de I'imprimerie. His small Caractères de l'imprimerie (1742) is reproduced in its entirety in this new book." Near Fine in a slightly used dustwrapper. which is partly darkened on the rear panel and has a small closed tear on the front panel. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-23407
