Set in Arrighi `Vicenza' 16-point italic on mould-made Binda paper. Slight rubbing to bottom edge of boards, but overall a fine copy. Reddish-brown marbled paper boards, printed paper spine label. Octavo. [xxxviii] pp. (Item ID: 16124)


Although the colophon states that this is the first use of "Vicenza", Mardersteig's Arrighi type with modified ascenders, which terminate in serifs instead of blobs, "Vicenza" was n fact used in the colophon and imprint of The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico degli Arrighi. This, however, is a more extensive use of that type.
