The meddlers name is John Trevitt. We may no longer share the exaggerated enthusiasm of William Morris, who maintained that 'Jenson carried the development of roman type as far as it can go,' but the strength and nobility of this first true roman at once set the highest standard for every subsequent roman face.

Five hundred years of fine printing. The final section examines the 19th century and its era of mechanization, which began with the invention of lithography and ended with William Morris's rediscovery of the Middle Ages.

The Good part of the book was written in 1950-something, by a guy who is now dead. Nevermind that through out the book the illustrations being used sometimes have nothing to do with the text near them, are for examples not mentioned in the text, or aren't in the same order as the text. The main takeaway from both the intimate details and the too quickly stated histories is that capital, the profit-motive, While some of the sections - best-sellers, etc - are snappy and infectious, most of Five hundred years of fine prints writing is composed of history that gallops all too quickly until the text hits the mud of some longueur intimately dissecting minute changes in an obscure printing technology.

and so much information about how printing took hold and spread around the world. Now on to the Bad part of the book. Despite the bile, it gave a human touch to an otherwise monotonous read. Where it's good it's quite satisfying, but the travesty that has been done to the original text apparently the Meddler cut out an equal number of pages that he added to keep the book at the original length, so somethings he decided we should not have to know, so that we could have space to find out that he doesn't like Graham Greene or John Updike and never mind Agatha Christie, it's not like she defined a whole genre or anything.

It was an educational read, but one which felt really, really educational - the book equivalent of lima beans. In other words, the authorial voice is either too little, or far too much, and I often found myself glazing over.
