The Dean of American Printers. Theodore Low De Vinne and the Art Preservative of All Arts.
octavo, 112 pp. Foreword by Matthew Carter, followed by a detailed checklist of over 160 items on show at the Grolier Club, February 19 - April 26, 2014. Theodore Low De Vinne (1828-1914) was one of the most important American figures of the 19th century book world and the exhibition honors him on the centenary of his death. De Vinne was a founding member of the Grolier Club, and his De Vinne Press was responsible for most of the important Grolier Club works published during his lifetime. Additionally, he was a leader in his profession (particularly in the development and adoption of new printing technology), a committed scholar in the history of printing, and an accomplished author of works on the origins and history of printing. The catalogue surveys books, manuscripts, letters, photographs, and other objects illustrating De Vinne's life and accomplishments, many drawn from the Grolier Club's own collections. With numerous color illustrations. Set in Matthew Carter's version of De Vinne's Century roman type, christened "Boydlow" - the first use of this font. Printed on Mohawk paper. Designed by Jerry Kelly. New. Bookseller Inventory # 23624
