Book Description Midas Books, Tunbridge Wells, 1980. Original Black Cloth Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 1980. 400pp. B&W illustrations throughout. "This book is the first to provide for the interested layman and the designer a full pictorial history of calligraphy among those nations using the Roman alphabet. Since calligraphy concerns itself with the art of fine writing, the technical study of individual hands and the niceties of palaeographical scholarship are not included, having been worthily treated elsewhere, and for those who wish to pursue this aspect of the subject a full bibliography is provided. The portrayal of the various changes which affected western writing over two thousand years is linked with contemporary events and artistic styles current at the time, so that handwriting can be seen as part of all that goes to make up a period in history or art." Book is in excellent condition with no inscriptions. Unclipped dust jacket has a closed tear to the top of the spine and light creasing to edges. Heavy book so extra will be needed for shipping to non-UK customers. Size: 11" Tall. Bookseller Inventory # Calligraphy001
