Hieroglyphs, printed in Leningrad

From the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in Leningrad catalogue of oriental typefaces printed for the 1928 PRESSA exhibition in Cologne. These hieroglyphs were probably cut by Ferdinand Theinhardt for Karl Richard Lepsius, beginning in the 1850s. After H. Berthold AG acquired the Theinhardt foundry, they continued to offer Ferdinand Theinhardt’s hieroglyph fonts … probably for as long as they cast & sold metal type (i.e., until c.1978).
