        The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico Vicentino Degli Arrighi

      1926. ARRIGHI, Ludovico Degli. The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico Vicentino Degli Arrighi., surnamed Vicentino. 8vo., bound in original quarter-vellum over decorated red boards, in a handsome felt-lined silk chemise and slipcase. Paris: [Officina Bodoni for and with] Frederic Warde, 1926. |~||~||~||~||~| One of 300 copies. Facsimiles of the original writing books first printed in Rome (1522 & 1523). With an introduction by Stanley Morison. Warde was responsible for the composition of this volume, Mardersteig for the printing only. This volume reproduces Arrighi's La Operina on pages 1-32, with italic types cut into woodblocks by the artist Ugo da Carpi. Ludovico Arrighi (1475-1527), bookseller, publisher, papal scribe, printer and type designer in Renaissance Rome, was the "scriptor brevium" in the Papal Chancery, which led Arrighi to create an influential pamphlet on handwriting in 1522 called La Operina, demonstrating an italic typescript in the chancery style. Arrighi's italic printing types, less sloped and more formal than the earlier Aldine, were particularly elegant and not only influenced the italics of sixteenth-century type designers but were revived by a number of significant twentieth-century type designers and printers as well. Very fine copy. Mardersteig 15. Barr 14.
