ROGERS, Bruce. DÜRER, Albrecht. ~ The Construction of Roman Letters.

Printed on grey Arches handmade paper, ruled in pale red. Pp. 39. Tall 12mo, a largely unopened copy in the original black paper covered boards, slightly rubbed at spine ends, marbled endpapers.
Dürer’s Roman letters were printed from process blocks made by Emery Walker from a copy of ‘editio princeps’ in the British Museum. One of Bruce Roger’s most balanced books with a beauty and simplicity of design.
