* Of the Vijf Ponden Pers, a series of exquisite bibliophile books printed in secret under the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, this is the very last one, printed after the war. It is a compact text from 1936 about typography by Morison, the designer of Times type. First Principles of Typography was the credo of Jan van Krimpen, who was responsible for the design AND for the type of this book.
