Ronald Steur(1942) born in the Netherlands as son of a printer. As boy of five he got familiar with lead types and letterpress. Got involved in the family printingshop but studied Ecomics and worked for the dutch government and some years at the U.N. in Vienna. Already in the seventies he started his private press and after his retirement in 2005 he got involved in a museum typefoundry in Westzaan. During many years he got more and more interested in storirs of the past of type development and typecasting. And so he got the question from publishing house Brill about what happened with the chinese that had been cast in Amsterdam in the 19th century. My lecture will be a report of the nearly three year search.
