Cloth, 8vo, 29 cm, xvi, 250 pp, 70 full-page ills (including 32 in colour). . From the blurb: "From the 1640 "Bay Psalm Book" to Isaiah Thomas's "Folio Bible" of 1791 to "The Century Dictionary" (1889-96) of Theodore Low De Vinne to D. B. Updike's 1928 "Book of Common Prayer" to products of contemporary presses - this monumental survey is the first work of scholarship and critical judgment to compress into a single volume a comprehensive account of the development, variety, and quality of American typography. .The Printed Book in America is a narrative of how printing arrived, spread, and flourished in the American colonies - of how it gradually attained, in its finest manifestations, the status of an art - of how in this Century it had associated with it such diverse and extraordinary talents as Updike, Rogers, Goudy, Dwiggins, Ruzicka, and the Grabhorns. Besides treating of the country's great typographers, there are discussed private and special presses which, building upon the heritage of the past, have carried forward traditions and enriched aesthetic achievements in American printing and bookmaking."
