        Octavo: Journal of Typography 1–8

      London: Eight Five Zero, 1986. First printing. Complete run; issues 1?-7 saddle-stapled into printed card wrappers with wraparound glassine dust-jackets; final issue on CD-ROM. All issues in mint condition, still sealed in publisher's original packaging. Edition of 3000 copies. Simon Johnston and Mark Holt founded 8vo studio in 1984, and were soon joined by Hamish Muir (see Johnston's eponymous web site). In 1986 they launched the influential journal Octavo for a planned run of eight issues. As the editorial in the first issue states: "Octavo has evolved from a desire to see an independent publication which acts as a serious forum for the discussion of matters, both contemporary and historical, relating to typographic design. In its eight issues the journal will focus primarily on typography within graphic design, but will also investigate the way in which letterforms are used in the visual arts, poetry, architecture and the environment, as well as looking at broader matters such as design education." Uncommon, particularly so in a complete run.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1986. First. First trade edition. Fine in a fine example of the rare trial dustwrapper, as well as a somewhat spine-faded, near fine example of the trade dustwrapper. The trial dustwrapper is on a darker, coarse speckled gray paper, has some slightly variant text imposition, and does not credit George Disario for the rear panel photograph. We do not know if this omission, or the texture of the paper itself caused this design to be rejected. We are aware of only one other example of this trial dustwrapper. .

Mapplethorpe's images provoke an emotionally layered response in harmony with the text."

Vollständiges Grundwerk in 24 Bänden, die Ergänzungsbände 25 (Personenregister), 26 bis 28 (Deutsches Wörterbuch), 29 Wörterbuch Englisch) und 30 (Ergänzungen A - Z) sowie der Weltatlas, insgesamt somit 31 Bände. Enthalten sind 260.000 Stichworte sowie 35.000 zumeist farbige Abbildungen, Karten und Tabellen. Im Standardwerk der Lexikographie, dem Seemann-Verzeichnis, heißt es zu dieser Auflage: "Dieses große enzyklopädische Lexikon ... befriedigt auch höchste Qualitätsansprüche." Die Brockhaus-Redaktion habe zur Erstellung des Werkes "in vieler Hinsicht den Aufwand einer mittleren Universität" betrieben. Es erschienen noch 6 Ergänzungsbände und ein großformatiger Weltatlas. Erst 1996 abgeschlossene und damit noch gegenwartsnahe Enzyklopädie mit hohem Aktualitätswert.. Wenige Bände, wie zumeist Echtlederbände, mit kleinen Bereibungen, wenige Goldschnitte mit leichten Spuren; der Weltatlas mit Bereibungen am Hinterdeckel. Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar dieser sehr gesuchten, repräsentativen Echtleder-Ausgabe. Als vollständiges Ensemble mit Ergänzungsbänden und Atlas sehr selten.
