Description
 
Joseph Blumenthal (au). More than a survey of printing in America, this distinguished volume illustrates the art of printing at its best. Blumenthalís research at Dartmouth Collegeís Baker Library yielded a rich history of the development of American printing, from its roots with Stephen Daye & Isaiah Thomas in 1640 to work of recent luminaries such as Grabhorn, Conkwright, Eisenman, Wilson, Baskin, Ritchie, Hoyem, Blumenthal, Stinehour, & Everson. The volume is itself a wonderful example of classic bookmaking. The plates complement the text & constitute a splendid anthology in their own. For nearly 5 decades, Blumenthal served as Dir. of the Spiral Press. Chapters: the Colonial Period; the 19th cent. & into the 20th cent.; the renaissance in Amer. print.; & the 20th cent.
