Summary
"For the last book edition overseen by Prof. Maryatt in the collaborative series started in 1986, we decided to examine the book as an icon. We looked at significant developments in 650 years of printing history using primary sources at Denison Library, including a Gutenberg leaf, and books printed by Aldus Manutius, Nicolas Jenson, John baskerville, Giambattista Bodoni, Frederic Goudy and Sumner Stone. The result is a small library showcasing the continuing importance of the book"-- Introduction
