Oblong 12mo, 40pp. No date, ca. 1880s. Inner cover with style index. A varied collection of alphabets originally published by Spon, reproduced at a diminished scale (and price) for practical use in the field. Somewhat scruffy in appearance compared to their full-size counterparts, and with few surviving copies. Creasing and a few nicks to the yapp edges, overall Very Good. Clean and complete. A good addition for the completist collector of alphabets and lettering books.
