Monotype Matrix Handy Index (1955)

Handy Index of 'Monotype' Rental Matrices. (Philadelphia: Lanston Monotype Machine Company, 1955). Printing code: "A39-8M-7-55" [hence my assumption that this dates from 1955].

Index of Monotype Rental Matrices (1970)

Index of Monotype Rental Matrices (Library Fonts). (Philadelphia: Lanston Monotype Machine Company, 1970). Printing code: "2-70". This says that it supersedes a 24 page "Handy Index of Monotype Rental Matrices." The 1955 version above, though, is only 15 pages.

No. 790, Stymie Bold, 16 & 21 Point

This is an "Advance Proof" (but really just an adverting sheet) for new cuttings of Series No. 790, Stymie Bold, in 16 point and 21 point. (It is not a part of {MTF1}; I obtained it as a separate sheet.)

The icon to the left links to a JPEG version of this Advance Proof, which is probably sufficient. It is 5.6 Megabytes. If for some reason you need the 21 Megabyte PNG version, click here:
