Pages 101-108 - The Incomparable Cheltenham Family

An 8-page folding spread set in various member of the Cheltenham family. The order here, while in correct numeric page order, is misleading. The reader of the physical volume first encounters page 101. Upon turning this page, pages 102 and 107 appear (but these two pages are not unified into a single spread). Page 102 folds out to the left, revealing a unified two-page spread, pages 103-104, advertising ATF Kelly presses. Page 107 folds out to the right, revealing two separate pages (105, 106) with several showings of material set in Cheltenham family members. Finally, folding everything back up and proceeding, page 108 appears last.

The designs use Celtic Borders (see page 645), American Borders (probably Nos. 301, 305, and 306, see p. 693), Jacquish Brass Rule Ornaments (see page 708), Antique Ornament (No. 9601, mortised, see page 712), American Borders (No. 322, see page 695), Vocational Cameos (No. 8401, hourglass, see page 719 and No. 8413, theater masks page 721), American Borders (No. 1209, see page 697), Ovolo Borders (see page 632), Roters Illustrators (No. 7218, see page 728), American Borders (No. 311, see page 693), Vocational Cameos (No. 6004, ink balls and composing stick, and No. 8402, open book, see page 719), Vocational Cameos (No. 4808, iron handpress, see page 720), [an unspecified traditional flower on p. 106; might be Goudy Paragraph Terminals, see page 710)], Litholine and Lithodot Brass Rule (see pages 828-832), Antique Borders No. 1 (see page 672), Jacquish Brass Rule Ornaments, again (see page 708), and Vanity Initials (Y5, see page 774).
