Printer’s Manuals: from Moxon to the PIA is the previously unpublished text of a talk delivered by Alexander S. Lawson as part of Doc Leslie’s “Heritage of the Graphic Arts Lecture Series.” Professor Trevor Howard-Hill, in his review of Printer’s Manuals appearing in the June 2003 issue of “Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America” notes: “We received gratefully the valuable additions that Lawson’s talk supplied . . . The strength of his talk, to which Kramer added illustrations and a chronological checklist of works cited, and its value to bibliographers derives from his access to the English and American manuals he described.” In a follow-up e-mail to The Printery, Professor Howard-Hill notes: “I learned from the essay; this is a commendation.”
