Typeface

In 1807 Priscilla published Sketches of Human Manners, Delineated in Stories, intended to illustrate the Characters, Religion, and Singular Customs, of the Inhabitants of Different Parts of the World.  

The book is rather small and a delight to handle. One of the features is the use of multiple typefaces on the title page. The title covers 13 separate lines of text and each of them seems to be different font.

To date this book has not been digitised.
