Leaf from a Baskerville Birmingham Bible
Baskerville, John 1707 - 1775
Baskerville, England’s greatest type-founder and printer, had announce his retirement from active printing the year before. He returned to the press, however, and hastily printed this folio Bible to compete with a crudely printed one issued by his most vituperative enemy, Nicholas Boden, and his former senior workman, Robert Martin. This Bible, although far inferior to his Cambridge Bible, was a financial success.
