Here’s the latest addition to the extensive group of type specimens in our Updike Collection: the Catálogo de tipos maquinaria y materiales para las artes gráficas of the National Type and Paper Company.
Purchased from Libros Latinos, this was the catalog of type, ornaments, equipment and other printing needs intended for National Type and Paper Company’s Latin American customers. Only two other copies of the book are listed in the OCLC database (the copies are held by Columbia and the University of Virginia, home of Rare Book School). The UVA catalog dates the book to 1928.
It’s a great type specimen and a great addition to the collection. It’s also one of the purchases made available completely by funds received through Occasional Nuggets, so thank you again, subscribers!
