Quick Reference

Who worked for Brydges at his Lee Priory Press and later wrote Typographia, or, The Printer's Instructor. Published by Longmans in 1824 in four different formats, generously illustrated (especially with various alphabets) and elaborately decorated, it described the invention of printing, documented early English printers, and supplied ‘an elucidation of every subject connected with the art’. Despite its errors, the work is still of considerable practical and historical interest.
