The Dean of American Printers

Theodore Low de Vinne and the Art Preservative of All Arts

Theodore Low De Vinne (1828–1914) was the leading commercial printer of his day and is one of the most important figures in the book world of the nineteenth-century United States. Illustrating De Vinne’s life and accomplishments, and published to coincide with the centenary of his death, this catalogue accompanied a Grolier Club exhibition. It contains books, manuscripts, letters, photographs, and other objects, many drawn from the Club’s own collections. A detailed checklist and a foreword by the award-winning type designer Matthew Carter enhance the volume’s usefulness for anyone interested in the history of the book.
