Notes:
"This is a Borzoi Book published by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc."
"First Edition."
"The text of this book was set in Janson, a digitized version of the type cast from matrices long thought to have been made by the Dutchman Anton Janson, who was a practicing type founder 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 founder Dirk Voskens."--A Note on the Type.
