Die Frühdruck im deutschen Südwesten 1473-1500, l: Ulm (catalogue of an exhibition held at the Württembergische Landesbibliothek in 1978)

Stuttgart, Württembergische Landesbibliothek, 1979
(29 cm), xxiv, 407 pp., illustrations, some in colour, some folding). 180 catalogue entries. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. - Annals of the printers Johannes Zainer der Ältere und der Jüngere, Conrad Dinckmut, Lienhart Holl, Johannes Reger, Johannes Schäffler. No further parts were published. “The author’s researches correct a great deal of earlier bibliographical work, one result – by no means the least important – being the demonstration that there were two Johann Zainers, father and son. His revised identifications of printers and types affect the history of printing in places outside his chosen area, notably Strasbourg” (from a review by Lotte Hellinga, in The Times Literary Supplement, 5 June 1981, p.650). ¶ Upper wrapper rubbed and one corner bumped; otherwise a very good, unmarked copy.
