Alan Jay Prescott

1885, George Bruce’s Son

I am interested in reviving this face. Does anyone know whether this has been done?

Bruce Ornamented No. 1077Herman Ihlenburg, usually associated with MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan (Philadelphia), designed and cut this sizzling all-caps latin face for the Bruce TF. The patent application, submitted and approved on the same days as the one for Ornamented No. 1079 (Brehmer), was likewise assigned to David W. Bruce (New York) [USPTO D15752].

You already have a reprint of the ad published in The Inland Printer of October 1885. The patent specimen includes all alphanumerics plus routine punctuation, &, !, ?, $, £ and hyphen. I also have a PDF of the 1901 catalog specimen.
