The Type Faces Of Morrison & Gibb Limited - Anon.

Morrison & Gibb, 1967, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper a little rubbed and frayed. Edges of the text block lightly spotted and tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “THIS book contains information regarding type faces available for mechanical composition on our Monotype plant and also those for filmsetting on our Monophoto installation. This is, in fact, our prime purpose — to provide our customers — and our potential customers — with a handy-sized workmanlike book which gives the information they want regarding the faces we hold.

For good measure we have written up a condensed version of our house style procedures and have given a potted history of the firm which is 130 years old this year.

A page of typographic tables has been added, and last, but certainly not least, we have given specimens of the more common book faces in the most common sizes. We hope you find the ‘two-page opening’ layout useful.

The volume is dedicated to you, the customer, as a result of whose constant pleading this up-to-date edition has been produced.”

Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Black boards with White titling to the Upper Board. 63 pages.
