New matrices were cut at the Dale Guild by T. Rehak for the 16pt size only.
There were about a half dozen 100# text fonts cast; no small fonts were cast. The type is lightly used, much is uninked. Some caps & lower-case were mortised on a rare Rouse Mortising Machine for better fitting.Some seen at bottom of cap/small cap box and others are here & there. No kerning caps/small caps to break. This is Barth-cast foundry type using virgin metals, not remelted type. Font will come in 3 fonting boxes with lids and inner trays. They were designed for metal type, and can be reused for larger bodied types [or smaller] once this font is laid in a case. The lines of type are 27 pica long. A used font in very good condition.
There are a NO worn or damaged sorts as can be seen in the pics. + + + + + + + + + +. + + + + + + + + +. Most of what I list is not my own, it's listed for friends. I sell old and new types, type-founders' artifacts, type-cabinets & cases, strip material including new brass rule & new 1/2 pt.

Books on printing, typography and wood engraving; DePol wood engravings [and a few DePol blocks], early printed leaves, books about books, books on illuminated manuscripts and facsimiles. I really do appreciate it.
