Offered: Vintage Condensed Gothic wood type, 6 Pica Line (approximate 1 inch tall letter height). Font has no manufacture's mark. Offering is a sizable 86 piece font which includes a complete alphabet of Caps letters as well as some punctuation. PLEASE NOTE: This font DOES NOT include lowercase letters or figures. Please see chart below for more information on font letter distribution offered; chart below includes character count for entire font: Cap letters & punctuation included.As mentioned above this offering has no manufactures markings. Unfortunately there were numerous small wood type manufactures that did not identify their company on the Cap A as was the practice for most of the notable wood type manufactures that printers are familiar with Hamilton, Tubbs, Page, American Wood Type to name a few. This offering would make a very nice addition if you have been considering adding wood type to your shop inventory.
This is a small enough size (one inch tall) plus being a condensed face you are not restricted from using this on smaller sized platen presses. You could easily accommodate use of this font with a table top press. Most wood type has a fair share of wear to the edges as well as dings in the type face that occur through the years or as some like to call it "patina".
There are a few letters that have dings or may have wood removed from individual letters for tighter letter spacing. This is a somewhat common finding on older fonts of wood type. Please carefully view all photos included with this offering for acceptability to your needs. One cap letter "E" was modified to be substituted for a letter "F".I have included this modified Cap "E" as a Cap "F" on the inventory list below. This is a somewhat common practice you find.
