Elzevir is a celebrated family of Dutch booksellers, publishers, and printers of the 17th and early 18th centuries. The duodecimo series of "Elzevirs" became very famous and very desirable among bibliophiles. After having enjoyed an almost legendary reputation among bibliophiles for excellence of typography and design, the family ceased printing in 1681.
