First Principles of Typography

Excerpt

The following attempt at a rationale of book-typography first appeared as an article in No. 7 of The Fleuron published six years ago, when it also went out of print. Although several partial reprints have been made--and I have heard of at least one complete, but unauthorized edition--nevertheless I still receive demands from printers as well as from those outside the trade for whom it was originally written. This edition is printed at the request of American correspondents. As the brevity of the essay seems to be one of its most approved qualities, no expansion, and only slight revision, has been made. The following text is, therefore, identical with that of 1930 except for a few lines.

S. M.

London, 1936.
