permit ready comparisons of width, color and design.
Second: Specimens by sizes in paragraphs of series to
permit of more critical comparison of mass or page effects.

Important Notice
To prevent confusion of identical numbers heretofore used by both this
and other type foundries to identify body type faces, the numbers 570 have
been added to the old numbers used by the Inland Type Foundry. Thus, for-
mer No. 10 of the Inland Type Foundry is now No. 580, and former No. 2 is
No. 572. The following is a list of changes in numbering body type faces
originated by the Inland Foundry.
Inland Oldstyle No. 9 now No. 579 Inland Roman No. 20 now No. 590
Inland Oldstyle No. 11 now No. 581 Inland Roman No. 26 now No. 596
Inland Oldstyle No. 13 now No. 583 Inland Roman No. 29 now No. 599
Inland Oldstyle No. 16 now No. 586
