From the Back Cover
The alphabets are arranged according to type style. Plates 1–11 are Roman and include variations of Roman style. These are bold, straightforward alphabets, with serifs and graduated thick and thin strokes. Plates 12–65 are Antique, the most popular 19th-century letter form. These alphabets have highly decorative serifs with cut-outs, circles, angles, rectangles, and design variations. Plates 66–100 are Gothic―the most modern specimens, being sans serif. These fonts were mainly used on posters and were the springboard for 20th-century typographic designs.

Chaque page est consacré à une fonte, la plupart d’entre elles ont étés numérisées, parfois sous d'autres noms, et souvent le résultat n'est pas très heureux.
Bref, un ouvrage intéressant pour son aspect catalogue que je conseille d'acheter en dessous de 7 ou 8 $, pour un ouvrage plus complet "American Wood Type; 1828-1900" du même auteur est apparemment un référence.
Recommandé pour les graphistes et les illustrateurs.
This has many of the fonts shown in "American Wood Type; 1828-1900" by the same author.
This book only shows the fonts, and does not include the history or other information given in his other book.
There are other fonts shown in the other book that are not included here, but still a worthy addition to any font fanatic's book collection.
