Barnhart Brothers & Spindler Type Specimen Book


Book of type specimens from BB & S Type Founders, Chicago. 1,002 page. Maroon buckram cover measures 8” x 11” x 3”

In addition to type and ornaments, the book contains a 130-page “Illustrated Catalog and Price List of Printing Material, Machinery, and Supplies” – a remarkable listing of presses, binding machines, trimmers, and cabinetry.

Handwritten inscription on the title page reads: “Owned b Door Co. Advocate [Wisconsin] 2/20/28.”

This shop guide and specimen book is well used, but it good condition. Cover shows normal wear one would expect from a working type guide – edge soiled, boards stained, and spine torn on lower front hinge. Pages 399 and 843 cut out but present. Lower portion of pg. 979-980 removed.

This is a terrific reference for graphic designers, typophiles, and printers.
