A collection of extracts taken from the preface of the Italian typographer, type-designer, compositor, and printer Giambatista Bodoni's Il Manuale tipografico (The Manual of Typography), first published by his widow in 1813.
The covers are a little tanned and rubbed, the contents in good order bar a few small spots of foxing.
