Reprint, hardback in dustwrapper. 21 × 14.5cm, 534pp.
Full title: A Manual of Style, containing typographical and other rules for authors, printers and publishers recommended by the University of Chicago Press, together with Specimens of Type
From the dustwrapper, "Here in one volume is a library of essential information on printing, publishing and editing." The first half of the book are the rules of editing etc and the second half is a wonderful display of specimens of type which shows the characters in the font as well as paragraphs printed at various font sizes etc.
This is an ex-library book but is in good solid condition. There is marking to the wrapper and inoffensive stamps to the ffep etc but the main body of text is in very good condition.
