Bookseller and scholar Andre Jammes presents us with yet another paper on Didot
typefaces (one of his life projects).
It was only in later works such as the great Lancelot cycle and the Didot
Perceval that the timeless spell of the Chretien--Hartmann tradition was broken and a more chronological perspective involving a rise and fall pattern introduced.
Given the fact that so little information is extant on the life circumstances of Mme Galien, her intellectual activities other than the fact of this book's existence, whatever working relationship she may or may not have had with her publisher Didot
, and so forth, it is currently impossible to ascertain whether all the pieces included in the small volume are authentic (i.e., the opening letter, the body of the text itself, and a closing response letter) or, alternatively, part and parcel of the literary fiction she creates.
Desde o seculo XVII que os tipos baseados nos de Claude Garamond eram a base da composicao para textos corridos e gracas a Fournier e aos Didot
foi realizada a adocao de uma unidade tipografica, o ponto Didot
, que representou um grande avanco na industrializacao dos caracteres.
The earlier materials include punches by Claude Garamont for the grecs du roi (1543-50), matrices for three sizes of roman and italic types known as the caracteres de l'universite, which were bought from Jean Jannon in 1641, punches and matrices for the romain du roi made by the graveurs du roi, Philippe Grandjean, Jean Alexandre and Louis Luce, between 1696 and 1750, and for the later official roman and italic types cut by Firmin Didot
and Marcellin Legrand.
