Description

Letter "dated February 27th 1939, addressed to Daniel Berkeley Updike of the Merrymount Press from Frederic W. Goudy, shortly after Goudy's Village Press had been destroyed by fire ... The letter is respectfully reproduced, set in ITC Berkeley Old Style, as an item of typographic interest, providing an insight into Goudy's indomitable nature at the age of 73, and his relationships with other giants of his generation."
