11OWT0 ORDER HAMILTON WOODTYPE
Wood type may be ordered in complete fonts or as indi-
vidual sorts. When ordering give name of face, catalog num-
ber and class. Should you desire to add characters to font
or sorts now in your cases, and are unable to determine name
and catalog number, send us three clear proofs of the follow-
ing characters:
('aps: A, H. R, S
Lower Case: e, m,o, s
Figures: 1 to 0 inclusive
Foreign language characters can be supplied in some styles.
See reference with specific listings.
HOW TO FIGURE LARGER SIZES
Sizes of the specimens shown in this catalog are six line
(72 points) and eight line (96 points). Due to space limita-
Itions only enough letters and figures are shown to calculate the
width of a line. For the same reason it is impractical to
show all available sizes of any one specimen. Practically all
styles can be sqpplied as small as four line, and larger in one
line multiples. All dimensions increase or decrease in the
same ratio. Tlius, the overall height and width of the 20 line
H is twice thatof the 10 line H, but the total area and print-
ing surface of  he 20 line is four times that of the 10 line.
This expansion'rate should always be considered when order-
ing sizes larger than the specimens shown.
