DESIGN FOR TYPE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 18,967, dated March 19, 1889.
Application filed January 2B, 1889. Serial No. 297,728. Term Ufpateut 14 years.
To all whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, CHARLES E. MEYER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, county of (look, and State of Illinois, have invented and produced a new and original Design for a Font of Script Type, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying typolgraphical impressions, forming part thereof'.
This design comprises upper and lower case letters, fig Ires, dollar-mark, character (t, and character or pounds sterling, two sizes for lower-case letters accompanying each font. All letters, characters, and figures are characterized by hair-lines and light swell shadelincs, and are made with the standard slope to the right. The distinguisl'iing characteristics of the font are found in the capital E, of which the upper member is made with a hair-line flourish crossing the lower member and finishing upwardly nearly to the top of the line, and in the capital H, whose initial stem is finished with a hair-line flourish making' an acute angle with the upper end of the stem andfinishing near to the upper end thereof at the top of the line. A similar flourish characterizes also the stem of capital K. The two intermediate elements of the capital M, the intermediate and .final element of capital N, and the final. and next preceding element of capital W are respectively joined at the bottom by an exceedingly short curve. The same formation is also presented at thc top junction of the two stems of capitalA and of the last and next preceding,r element of capital M. The first stem of capital V, at the very uppermost extremity, curves quite abruptly a very short distance to the left to make junction with the initial flourish, so that the angle between said flourish and stem 4o is much greater than .the difference in direction between the general course ci' the stem toward the upper part, except at that extreme tip, and the general direction of the portion of the flourish adjacent to said stem.
In addition to the foregoing characteristics, the principal or leadingl stem of many eapitals, A, li, F, G, ll, J, K, M, N, I, R, S, T, and Y, finishes with a flowing` curve resting on the line and terminating Very slightly above the line in a conspicuous dot.
I claim- The design for a font of script type herein shown and described.
In testimony whereof I have set my hand, in the presence of two witnesses, at Chicago, Illinois, this 11th day of January, 1889.
CHARLES Il EYER.
