from The Ingenious Machine of Nature

Here's part of one of the more than 250 pages, and I congratulate Timmings & Debay - is this a company? - for the terrific typographic and page layout job, although I'm glad they didn't push the overprinting of text any more than they did.

Ligatures - not the surgical ones, but those lines joining two letters (in the word Introduction, at right, for example) - make me want to hold a book with tongs, so I don't get hand oil on it!
