large quarto, (112)pp. From the Foreword by Ewan Clayton: "Historical Scripts is a book for the historian, the Palaeographer, the calligrapher, the typographer and anyone with an interest in western lettering and documents. With its survey of the development of bookhands, its excellent illustrations and soundly researched sources, it enables us not only to survey the history of manuscripts, but to see details of letter construction, to make judgements about the technical conditions of writing, its aulities of rhythm and movement, that are usually only possible when consulting an original manuscript." Second, Revised and Expanded edition. Originally published in 1984. Bookseller Inventory # 4490
