Sheffield & London: Stephenson, Blake & Co. Ltd., 1915.

Second Edition.

Rare English type specimen, a large and compelling example of the form, modified for the Australasian market with sections on letterpress book titlings, newspaper founts and heading types, initials, borders, type ornaments, and cases of brass rule. The 'Advance Australia' Coat of Arms complete with kangaroo and emu appears before a page dedicated to depictions of horses and prize-worthy cattle.
