[Didot, Firmin] Pontificalis. Trial sheets on vellum for unpublished edition.
(Paris Firmin Didot c. 1870) Folio. 72ff., consisting of the first 24 gatherings repeated three times. With fine steel engravings by Jules Jean Marie Joseph Huyot. Printed on vellum in red and black. It appears this work, a late collaboration between Ambroise Firmin Didot and Huyot, was never published and that this copy may have been a sample drawn up of trial sheets in order to give prospective buyers a sense for the size and weight of the finished work. A magnificent specimen of printing by Didot, with text printed in two columns, engraved tendril borders, six-line initial capitals, and printed on rich vellum. Bound in brown cloth with a straight-grain pattern and a subtle blind-stamped rule on covers, title in gilt on spine. Some spotting to front cover, minor bumps to corners.
