From „A“ for „Abklatsch“ to „Z“ for „Zinkdruck“. Michael Trenkle has compiled a glossary of terms commonly used in the antiquarian book business. He includes – and explains exactly – graphic techniques as well as different kinds of paper, cloth or leather, typography, the methods and the history of printing and book binding. An excellent resource for rare book descriptions, and the best German glossary about the terms of the trade.
