Re: [BKARTS] Moving Type and Titling Questions



Bob,

I once saw an early 18th century copy of Barclay's "Apology for The Quakers,"
 that was perhaps 3/8" in thickness. The lettering on the spine ran
vertically and simply read "Apology     Barclay."  The binding was old, but I
could not attest to its being original.
