Leaf from the Doves Bible
Sanderson, T. J Cobden, 1840-1922
The King James Version, edited by Rev. F. H. Scrivener for the syndics of the University Press, Cambridge, England, and printed by Emery Walker and T. J Cobden Sanderson. The work is printed in 'Doves' type, a translation of the famous fifteenth century font of Jenson by Walker. The Doves is frequently referred to as the finest formal book type of all time. The text was set by one compositor and printed on a one-hand press. This monumental Bible is, nevertheless, one of the greatest typographical masterpieces produced.
