CHICAGO TYPE FOUNDRY.
Scheme for Ordering Sorts.
The following table will be found useful in ordering sorts. It contains
a rough estimate (taking brevier as a standard) of the amount which the
respective boxes of the regular full-size lower case will contain. The frst
two columns give the letters and weight to box; the last two columns the
letters and the number that will weigh ayound. Of course printers in order-
ing can increase or decrease these quantities and weights to suit their wants,
or the proportion to the body of the type they need.
