3 Volumes, 4to, frontis., ii],[i]-iv,[iv list of subscribers],xliv,[i blank],684,[2 blanks],[1 index],[1 blank]; [ii],685-1308,[2 index]; [ii],1309-1875,[1]pp., 8 plates, some light foxing and staining, recent quarter calf, spines lettered in gilt, overall a nice uncut set. Herbert's continuation and revision of Ames' celebrated 'Typographical Antiquities'. After 25 years spent preparing the first two volumes of this revision, the doors to the Stationers' Company and their Register books were opened to Herbert (40 years earlier Ames had been denied access to Stationers' Hall). It was this, more than any other single source, that enabled Herbert to rise above Ames' previous edition. N° de ref. de la librería 23481
