Cleveland Type Foundry. By 1885.

Shown in the 1893 Cleveland specimen.

Shown in Inland Printer, Vol. 2, No. 5 (Feb., 1885) and also Feb. 1887. Both reprinted in Annenberg, "Typographical Journey..." NOT in Steve Saxe's 1880 Cleveland specimen.

In a posting to LETPRESS on 2012-08-24, Steve Saxe notes that he has been unable to find a patent for Cirrous, but that it is very much like Acadian No. 3 and No. 4. These were patented [NUMBER?, 13 June 1882] and designed by Henry Schuenemann for Cleveland. Saxe hypothesizes that the "Acadian" design patent covered the designs for both it and Cirrous, and that, consequently, Schuenemann is the designer of Cirrous.
