Title: Alphabetum Hebraicum Aditto Samaritano Et Rabbinico Cum Oratione Dominicale, Salutatione Angelica, & Symbolo Apostolico
Description: . Romae, Typis. Sac. Congregationis de Propag. Fide, 1771. Woodcut vignette on titlepage. 16pp. (some foxing). 19th century blue wrappers. One of the rare publications of the Propagande Fide that was established in 1626 for propaganda among the Eastern peoples. Ferdinand II presented Illyrian types for a missal, and the Mediciean and other Oriental types from the Stamperia Vaticana were added to its stock, while Stefano Paolini engraved others. It continued its existence throughout the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries: Bodoni received his early training here. In 1789 most of the types were taken to Paris, where in 1805 an edition of the Lord's Prayer in 150 languages was printed as a compliment at the time of Napoleon's coronation. Much of the type still remains at the Imprimerie Nationale. [c.f. Birrell & Garnett 14] ..
