Series VI.  Files related to printers, ca. 1920-1983


Extent:  5 linear ft.


Contents:  Booklets, keepsakes, correspondence, photographs, printed material about the printers, samples of work, proofs, and notes


Arrangement:  Following an initial folder of images, arranged alphabetically by name of   printer.




            The series originally began as a file of "historic printers" probably organized by O. A. Dickman and continued by Lieberman.  At some point the files were expanded to include files for contemporary individuals prominent in the field of printing.  The files are sources of information about the printer, with occasional samples of their work.

            The first folder in the files is a collection of images of historic printers.  The file includes photographs, negatives, engravings, mock-ups for prints, and printed material.  Individuals include John Baskerville, Frimin Didot, Giambattista Bodoni, William Caslon, Tolbert Lanston, Beatrice Warde, Ottmar Mergenthaler, Johann Gutenberg, William Bulmer, and others.
