THE PRINTERS' INTERNATIONAL SPECIMEN EXCHANGE. Volume XIII
London, 1892. 9 x 11. (x) pages of Introduction & list of contributors + about 350 leaves of specimens (3 foldout). Publisher's full vellum over boards, titled in gold on spine and upper cover. Covers have old soil, spine darker, upper joint split one-third but held on tightly. Some protruding deckles dusty, but contents very clean. One plate is torn in half, but present. Very good copy. Devised by Andrew Tuer as a scheme "to develop higher skills among printers" and to "elevate public taste in typography," the Exchange succeeded brilliantly. Hundreds of printers worldwide participated. There is a great deal of color & metallic and "Artistic" printing.
