1 Friedman, Joan M. Color Printing in England: 1486-1870
New Haven Yale Center for British Art 1978 First Edition Wraps Very Good 
4to, ix, 72 pp followed by 72 plates, some in color. An exhibition catalogue on the subject at the Yale Center for British Art. The plates have short inked notes where captions would be placed and written by a studious former owner. Minor wear on spine and along the hinges -- the book was clearly used extensively, but by a careful and fastidious person. Otherwise, clean and tight.

2 Julliot, Georges Cahier de Technologie
Nancy 1941-1942 Quarter Leather, over Decorative Boards (a noteboo Very Good 
Folio, 14.5 by 9.5 inches, 37 by 24 cm. Unpaginated lined notebook, with 52 leaves containing content, illustrated and text, with material often, but not always, on both sides, and many blank leaves besides. Extraordinary student illustrated manuscript on printing, its technology, replete with lovely Art Nouveau decorative touches throughout. Sections are devoted to the history of printing, typography, metals used in printing, tools of the printer, corrections, composition, abbreviations, capitals, italics, alignment, colors, the art of printing, etc. and then such things as conservation. Besides the thoroughness of the manuscript on the sundry aspects of printing, the illustrations are disarming and quite literally invite the eyes to linger on the pages. Such school projects were a staple of French pedagogy, and for better or worse, French education has traditionally placed a premium on flair and style, at times, over substance. In the instance of this manuscript, the latter has not been sacrificed at the altar of the former, and the resulting product deserved the highest of marks on all accounts. Other than the headings, most of the text is written with a neat, albeit non-calligraphic, hand.
