Extensive specimen with large sections of border and decorative material (about a third of the specimen)with much "arts & Crafts" material (Bradley, Hapgood, Roycroft). With wood type and printing equipment.
According to Annenberg, "four different editions (of this specimen) were printed simultaneously, the difference being in the brass rule." This must be a later printing, however, as the errata from a previous printing has been corrected here.b.
