Price: $500.00

A print makers book of focusing on a variety of different fonts. Printed in German, the pages are individual loose leafs. The folio of book is green with a wonderfully designed cover pasted on. There are various floral and sculpture elements in the design. This book features 80 plates, though only 58 different fonts as often times a single font carries over several leaves. The fonts themselves are amazing in their diversity, some were flourishes, some fanciful, others more modern or art deco looking. They are printed in black, red, green, and gold, and sometimes uses combinations of those colors. Along with the plates is an introduction page (that on the reverse has a Table of contents indexed by the type of font: Roman, Gothisch, Fraktur, Script, Free fonts, Initials, Foreign Language Alphabets, and Digits etc.), an instructional page, and a circular with testimonials. This set has a total of 80 plates in it. What makes this book confusing though is that the Table of Contents, as well as the plates themselves have a several printing errors on the numbering of said plates. For some reason plates 1 - 8, have been labeled on the plate itself as 81 - 88. However since the title of each font has been printed on each page, one can cross reference with the table of contents and clearly see that plate 81 is plate 1, and so on. Additionally, plate 35, is misprinted in the Table of Contents as plate 85. Lastly this book is missing plate 6 (aka 86), which is the font Zierschrift (schattiert), gross Alph.  Measures 12 3/4" x 8 3/4". To view additional images click: https://photos.app.goo.gl/qbegn7plIIO6Y3K82. The cover shows wear, mainly soiling due to age. There are some small section of missing surface litho towards the top right corner. The folio itself shows some very minor rubbing to the edges. The instructional and circular pages show edge wear as they are printed on a thinner paper then the rest. There is a small stain on the bottom right corner of plate 71, but it does not affect the font shown.
