Very good. 
Minor wear to covers,
mostly edge wear
and bumping to corners. 
Price tag residue 
to back bottom right. 

A brisk tour through the history of Western typography,
from the time (c.1700 in France and England) when it can
be said to have become ‘modern’.
A spotlight is directed at different cultures in different times,
to trace the developments and shifts in modern typography.
Attention is given to ideas, to social context, and to technics,
thus stepping over the limited and tired tropes of stylistic analysis.
