Description
Caption: "Leaf from the Doves Bible, 1903-1905 A.D., The Doves Press No. 1 The Terrace, Hammersmith; The King James Version, edited by Rev. F. H. Scrivener for the syndics of the University Press, Cambridge, England, and printed by Emery Walker and T. J. Cobden Sanderson. The work is printed in 'Doves' type, a 'translation' of the famous fifteenth century font of Jenson by Walker. The Doves type is frequently referred to as the finest formal book type of all time. The text was set by one compositor and printed on a one-hand press. This monumental Bible is, nevertheless, one of the greatest typographical masterpieces produced--Otto F. Ege."
