Farmer, Little & Co.. By 1887.

See also their later Old Style Aldine. Unrelated to the wood type faces Aldine and Aldine Ornamented by Page.

Note: Saxe, in Nineteenth-Century American Designers and Engravers of Type , indexes "Aldine" and "Aldine Ornamented" as being on p. 84 of that volume. No such faces occur on that page. I believe that this is probably an indexing error for p. 88, where the Page wood type faces of these names occur, rather than an indexing error for the present Aldine.

Shown in their 1887 Specimens of Printing Types.
