Large Rare Early Antique 1.66″ 10-Line 120-Point Chamfer Gothic Light Face Letterpress Wood Type, Chamfered, Octic, Or Angled Group, Large Beautiful Set Of 146 Pieces, 1880s To Early 1900s, Unmarked Sans Serif Lineal Display Typeface, Full Uppercase Cap & Number Sets, Some Punctuation & Special Characters, End Cut, 10 Pica 1 21/32″ Font, cf. 205, Morgans & Wilcox Gothic No. 2, Tubbs Ancient Gothic, Wells Gothic Light Face No. Wilcox, James Edward Hamilton, More, Please View Our Other Auctions Here. There are a total of 146 pieces: a complete uppercase letter set, a complete number set, and some punctuation/special characters. Though a different class/width, it can be compared to the Hamilton No. 205 found on p. 14 or similarly to the Morgans & Wilcox Gothic No. 2 found on p. 16 of the 1890 Condensed Specimen Book of Wood Type Manufactured by Morgans & Wilcox Manfg Co. Likewise, in Rob Roy Kellys American Wood Type he identified Page as the first to offer the typeface in 1882 as No. Tubbs used the name Ancient Gothic for their version, and Wells named it Gothic Light Face No. It is a sans serif typeface that we believe dates between the 1880s and the early 1900s based on the other type specimens it was found with (see our current and completed listings to view the entire collection and the original type cabinet in which this set was housed). We welcome any information that might help us to definitively identify the maker. As would be expected, the set overall exhibits wear appropriate with its age with individual pieces varying in condition, and some or all of them having some or all of the following: general wear, chips, scratches, nicks, dents, gouges, edge wear, dirty and/or stained areas, marks, discoloration, vestigial ink, adhered paper remnants on reverse, etc. A few of the pieces also have some large missing pieces of wood from the side areas. We are unsure as to what type of wood the set is made from. The set weighs roughly 6 lbs 10 oz. This 146-piece antique set of 10-line 1.66 Chamfer Gothic Light Face letterpress wood type is sure to be a nice addition to your collection. This is one of many great items we currently have listed, including a set of 12-line 2 Chamfer Gothic Light Face, and other awesome sets of rare antique letterpress wood type.
