Robert Grabhorn Printing History Collection

San Francisco printer Robert Grabhorn built his printing collection in order to study the masters’ solutions to problems in design and typography. When his library moved to the SF Public Library in 1965, it included almost every typeface and printer of note from the past 500 years. Particularly strong in early type specimens, printers’ manuals, and the work of 16th century French and Italian masters, it also includes books from over 400 fine & private presses. The collection supports the study of printing, papermaking, and bookbinding with over 10,000 volumes and more than 100 periodicals.
