Korean type specimens

>Speaking of leaf books (were we not?), here is a beautiful example of one. I was half afraid our copy was missing or stolen, but simple disorganization was fortunately the culprit, and elbow grease has put it right.

This is copy number 47 of the first variant of the edition, which consisted of 95 hand-numbered copies. This is a monumental and exhaustive work consisting of a total of 22 specimens of different movable type fonts, accompanied by a description and identification in English, and including the font name in Hangul or
Korean characters.
