Alphabets Old and New, Illustration 175, Engraved on Brass, Bamberg, Reworked, Series 1
This image is our reworking of an illustration in the 1910 third edition of Lewis Foreman Day’s Alphabets Old and New, which the Smithsonian Libraries holds in its collections.
The Smithsonian Libraries is a system of twenty branch libraries located in various Smithsonian museums, research institutes, and offices, maintained in furtherance of original institution benefactor James Smithson’s wish “for the increase and diffusion of knowledge”. The libraries hold collections that are particularly strong in, among other areas of study, Decorative Arts and Design. Please consider making a donation to help the Smithsonian continue to fulfill that mission. One particularly fun way to do so in the case of the Smithsonian Libraries is by “adopting” one of the books in its collection through its Adopt-a-Book Program.
