The character of the design is preserved in the diphthongs, symbol &, the punctuationmarks, numerals, and dollar and p0und-ster ling marks.

in connection with the font are shown ten typographic adjuncts, the first six of which consist of types of different widths of reticulated character interspersed by a series of Term ofpa eut 14 years,

small heavy dots, the next two of types of reticulated like character interspersed by a series of small heavy dots, and the upper portion ornamented by the heavier line figures, as shown, and the last two consisting of the typesof reticulated like character interspersed by a series of small heavy dots, ornamented upon the face by the heavier-line figures, as Shown.
