ABOUT







Schriftgießerei der Andreäischen Buchhandlung

Frankfurt-based type-foundry, founded in 1667 by Johann Andreà, Frankfurt am Main. It remained the centre for type-foundries even after the rise of Leipzig as the centre for the book and book trade in the German speaking countries. In 1816 (some say 1838) the firm was sold to Benjamin Krebs but kept its original name until 1892 when August Weisbrod took it over. The type-foundry was particular well-known for its many Hebrew types and the great selection of delightful borders, tail- and headpieces.
