Notes:
"This is a Borzoi Book published by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc."
"First Edition."
"This book was set in Janson, a redrawing of type cast from matrices long thought to have been made by the Dutchman Anton Janson, who was a practicing typefounder in Leipzig during the years 1668-87. However, it has been conclusively demonstrated that these types are actually the work of Nicholas Kis (1650-1702), a Hungarian, who most probably learned his trade from the master Dutch typefounder Dirk Voskens."
"Typography and binding design by Dorothy Schmiderer Baker."
