SCALE OF FONTS
Showing the number of letters in each font from 3A's to 30A's. Heretofore it has not been cnstomary to
list large fonts of Wood Type, and customers have been compelled to double and treble the
small fonts, thus acquiring too many of the least used characters. These fonts
are carefully assorted and do not contain surplus characters.

ment of characters can be made.
