I just received that book.
"After 1647 most Elziver faces were cut by the highly-regarded Christoffel van Dyck, whose precise renditions were regarded by some experts at the time as finer than Garamond's."
Thanks a lot, Fabienne!
The book is faultlessly printed. (and in near mint condition :)
How they get by to print 1359 pages in small pieces of lead?
