The record of Goudy types

[Marlborough], New York: David Gildea, July 23, 1938. Tall narrow broadside approx. 29" x 5½", printed in red and black; one central fold, the top edge slightly miscreased; all else near fine. A list of 107 Goudy types on hand at the Village Press. "This record of Goudy types, complete up to the moment, is composed in Goudy Italian Old Style, and presented by David Gildea as a momento for visitors at the celebration of the Thirty-fifth Anniversary of The Village Press, held at Deepdene, New York, July 23, 1938." The 35th Anniversary celebrations of the founding of the Village Press was held at Frederic W. Goudy's house and workshop "Deepdene," at Marlborough, New York. With Will H. Ransom, Goudy founded the Village Press in 1903, an Arts and Crafts venture similar to those of William Morris in England. In addition to his independent work Goudy was the art director for Lanston Monotype for more than twenty-five years (1920-1947). In 1940 Goudy was appointed a lecturer at Syracuse University's School of Journalism. Not in OCLC although there are copies at Claremont College and Syracuse, and perhaps other locations.
