1926 Borders and Ornaments
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Very Scarce
The first UK edition of this very scarce work in the publisher's original paper wraps. A typography catalogue profusely illustrated with a variety of examples of borders and ornaments for publications, cast on the Didot Point System. These borders and ornaments were designed by Emil Rudolf Weiß (1875-1942), a German painter, typographer and poet. He created numerous fonts, including: Weiß-Fraktur (1913), Weiß-Antiqua (1928, designed for the Bauer Type Foundry), Weiß-Gotisch (1936) and Weiß-Rundgotisch (1937). However, only a few of them are still in use.
In the publisher's original paper wraps. Front cover is detached and rear cover is missing. Front cover is chipped to the extremities with the odd small mark. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally clean, though a little soiled and spotted to the page perimeters.
