Book Description David R. Godine, Boston, Mass., 1988. First edition. Hardback. 183pp. Red cloth boards with blind stamped design to upper corner of front and gilt lettering to spine. Dust jacket. This is a comprehensive survey of the copybooks of the sixteenth-century writing maters with accompanying pictorial displays of their italic letters. In this elegant and scholarly book, Kay Atkins has provided a unique and invaluable source document annotating and illustrating twenty-two copybooks in elaborate detail, supplying extensive biographical and historical information about both the books and the scribes, and providing a complete description of the upper and lower case italic letters found in their pages. from Fanti in 1514 to Beauchesnes in 1610, each letter of the alphabet and its variant forms has been reproduced and enlarged, presenting the reader with the opportunity of comparing 2,500 minuscules and majuscules, letter by letter in chronological order. The author also provides a wealth of scholarly information. For every writing master she has recorded place and date of birth, occupation, and age at the time the book was published. For each of the copybooks discussed, the name of the publisher and engraver, dimensions of the edition, and the audience for which it was written is given. Finally, the majority of the editions are displayed in actual size with the scribe's name, the title page, sample exemplar pages and page enlargements. Pages have been translated into English from the original languages by twelve scholars. Wherever possible, a signed example of the scribe's handwriting is also shown so that the reader can compare woodcut and manuscript letters. This magnificent survey has a huge amount of information crammed into its pages. It is a unique and comprehensive vade mecum for anyone interested in the art of writing and offers a singular contribution to the scholarship of the field. Book condition: near fine. Some very slight marking to boards and a little colour fade to a band (approx 1cm) around the lower edges of the boards and spine. Very clean and unmarked internally. Dust jacket: very good. Unclipped. Small closed tear to upper edge of front, light spotting. Some colour fade to spine and to front and rear progressively diminishing from the spine inwards. Small puncture mark to front adjacent to spine. Jacket in a protective sleeve. Bookseller Inventory # 1305360
