A propos de cet article

quarto, (xii), 310pp. Edited by Mary W. Gilroy. Illustrated and printed with accents and capitals and headlines in green or rust or both. The serif originated with Roman inscription letters, its history and development here detailed in letter cutting in stone, and the use of the brush in shaping the Roman letterform. The author "questions accepted theories as to the serif's origin, and advances his own theory with skillful reasoning, detailed illustration, and epigraphic proof." Very fine. "Origin of the Serif is a work of Genius." Philip Hofer. A very fine copy. N° de réf. du libraire 24485
