Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "Lvtetiae, Ex officina Roberti Stephani typographi Regij, typis Regijs. Printed by the son of the great printer and eminent scholar, Robert the elder, whose text was followed. The type was cut by Claude Garamond, the most distinguished of French designers. This type, containing all the known ligatures, is called Character typi regii grecs du roi or royal type, as it was made at the expense of Francis I. In those days the appearance of the printed page attracted the scholars and Garamond says that it is the type cutter who “feathers the nest of publishers and brings honey to their hive.” (Darlow and Moule 4634)"
