Historic Russian Typography and Printing

Thought I would take a little break from the recent xType chronicles today and preview some pages from Volume 1 of the first (and only) edition of the Illustrated History of Book Printing and Typography, 1889, with text in Russian. Author Fiodor Il'ich Bulgakov (1852-1908), was a well-known Russian writer, art critic and journalist. With 364 pages of text, drawings, and color chromolithograph plates, this book would be a fascinating read for any scholar of typography and printing. Available from Russian Art and Books, $895. Of course it would help if you could read Russian. ;)
