1 Senefelder, Alois A COMPLETE COURSE OF LITHOGRAPHY With a New Introduction by A. Hyatt Mayor
New York Da Capo Press 1968 B000MT92ZS First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good+ dust jacket 
Ex-library book, still in quite good condition - usual ex-lib type of markings. Light edge and corner wear, light soiling to jacket and outer edge of pages, fading to spine, a little sticker residue and small peel to laminate on front. Pages are clean and intact. Colour frontispiece and b/w illustrations throughout. . Review: "..Litho by the man who created litho...Lithography was a major step forward in printing. It combined the versatility of intaglio prints with the production capablity of letterpress, and made printed reproduction accessible and affordable.....; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Back when copying meant hand-copying, it was quite remarkable (to use his example) to have fifty copies of a meeting's minutes an hour after the meeting. What amazes me is not just the fact of the copies, but the low cost that made it worthwhile to record even mundane meetings. The most remarkable fact about lithography is that very nearly every technical aspect of the craft was developed or foretold by one mind, that of Alois Senefelder. Very few other branches of knowledge have been so completely laid out by their founders... This book is where Senefelder lays out the history, the materials, and the technique of early lithography...The book's second section describes the making of lithography's tools and materials... Book's final section to be the most interesting: the techniques of preparing the stone and pulling the prints. Much of this advice is still applicable, especially the many ways of marking the lithographic stone or plate... " (*Note: due to heavy weight, extra shipping may apply)
