Bauersche Giesserei, Frankfurt A.M, No date (c. 1940-41) Not paginated (c. 32 pages). 4to (26,5 x 19 cm). Stiff paper wrappers. Fron cover with signs of removed tape, small label inside front cover. An essay by Heinrich Jost: ”Giambattista Bodoni. 1740-1813. Der Typograph der Könige und König der Typograph”. 10 pages showing Bodoni Roman, Italic semi bold and titling face followed by typographic samples. In 1926 the German foundry Bauer produced a metal version of Bodoni’s typefaces, thanks to designs by Heinrich Jost and punches hand-engraved by Louis Höll. The proportions of Bauer Bodoni were closer to the original models than the ATF, calibrating the thickness of the strokes and maintaining some important details.
