Library of Books as Examples of Printing

The Museum has an interesting collection of books chosen not for their content or famous writer but for their manner and place of printing.

With this collection, it is hoped that interested persons will explore the various factors about the design of a book, such as typeface, leading, margins, running heads, folio numbering, chapter commencement, methods of illustration (especially for letterpress), and binding.
