Pracktisches Handbuch der Buchdruckerkunst für Unfänger [A Practical Manual of Book Printing for Beginners]

Leipzig: Müller, 1791. First Edition. Evidently complete with folding plates and numerous illustrations and tables. Several pages concern musical notation and a folding chart details printing in Greek. While this is offered as a “manual” for beginners, it is a sophisticated guide to the use of a major piece of industrial machinery of the time. Two parts bound into a single volume; the second part bound with its own half-title leaf. Contemporary boards with a leather title label on the spine; two small, neat ownership signatures, one dated 1940 and a second 1797. Minor wear and a small chip at the foot of the spine; an excellent copy.
