Per Bigmore & Wyman: "This little work, [first] published and printed by the firm of Didot Pere et fils, is a practical typographical manual, treating every branch of composition and press work. It is quite a gem from a typographic point of view. Firmin Didot superintended the printing, and the book possesses the singular feature of not containing one divided word throughout."
