Description:

Mit zahlr. typographischen Beispielen. 5 Bll., 217 S. Gr.-8vo. Orig.-Leinen. "Any study of early Greek typography must begin with the seminal work of Robert Proctor, `The Printing of Greek in the Fifteenth Century`, in which he painstakingly charted the various courses by which the earliest printers of Greek attempted to solve the many problems inherent in stilling mobile Greek script into fixed metal type. In addition to the basic problem of how to print accents and breathings which appear on almost every Greek word, the contemporary Greek script as written by the scores of Greek exiles from the recently devastated Byzantine Empire was characterized by an extravagance of complicated an convoluted ligatures, abbreviations and contractions. The first Greek press in Venice [1486], for example, attempting to imitate contemporary scribal practice, possessed a fount of over 1,350 separate sorts." (K. Snipes, Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 41, No. 1, 1988), S. 120f.). - Sehr gut erhalten. , Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Printing of Greek in the Fifteenth Century I cannot let this book go forth without an apology to my readers, in that I have ventured to attempt a work dealing to a very large extent with technical details, without that knowledge of printing which can only be acquired by practical experience. In this respect I owe much to the kindness of Mr Horace Hart, the Controller of the Oxford University Press, who made many obscure points clear to me by ocular demonstration. The greatest care has been taken to make the illustrations facsimiles as exact as possible; but it will often be found that minute indications to which I have drawn attention in the text are not visible in the reproductions. I must ask those who wish to study the matter closely to turn to the originals in these instances, and to remember that in the first printed books Greek type generally printed with an exceptional lack of sharpness, and that since even the best process blocks magnify and harden any defect due to imperfection of inking or presswork, while they almost always thicken the lines to some extent, the appearance of the type is sometimes materially altered. Mr E. Gordon Duff gave me valuable help with the unique books in the John Rylands Library, especially in connexion with the photograph from the Batrachomuomachia shown in plate VII. To him, and to the other friends by whose knowledge and advice I have profited, my best thanks are due. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
