Mechanicals for American Wood Type: 1828-1900
Given to me by the very kind Chris Zelinsky. She pulled these mechanicals out of Rob Roy Kelly's trash.

It isn't a complete collection of all the fonts shown in the back of American Wood Type: 1828-1900, but it is a good sampling.

Note that the Corinthian No. 2 isn't shown in this full setting in the book, just A through D on page 143. Anyone see if I'm missing it? I've got the 1969 copy of the book.
