The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »

Book collectors, students of bibliography and of literature, librarians, and intelligent readers generally will find here the answer to many of their questions about printing. The author has assumed that such readers do not want minute details of engineering information but that they have a legitimate curiosity about how books were produced until recent times and who produced them. His discussion of printing history, the printer’s tools and methods of work, the development of type design, and the designing of books will give the amateur a foundation for the appreciation of typography. As a convenient summary of widely scattered information and as a map for further explorations in a particularly interesting field, the volume will be a welcome addition to even the most modest shelf of books.
