We are planning a reprint of Harry Carter’s A view of early typography: up to about 1600. This marvellous book is a fundamental work of typographic history. The text of a set of lectures given by Carter in 1968, it is written in peerless, lapidary prose. A view was published first in 1969 by Oxford University Press. The book has been out of print for years, and Oxford have now granted permission for this reprint, which is due for publication in spring 2002.
