+      John Baskerville (1706-1775) got involed in typography late in his career but
+      his contribution was significant.Baskerville was also involved in the design
+      of a Greek typeface which he used in an edition of the New Testament for 
+      Oxford University, in 1763. He adopted the practice of avoiding the excessive
+      number of ligatures which Alexander Wilson had started a few years earlier
+      but his Greek types were rather narrow in proportion and did not win the 
+      sympathy of the philologists and other scholars of his time. They did 
+      influence, however, the Greek types of Giambattista Bodoni. and through him
+      Didot's Greek in Paris.
+      
+      The typeface has been digitally revived as GFS Baskerville Classic by Sophia
+      Kalaitzidou and George D. Matthiopoulos and is now available as part of GFS'
+      type library.
