Algonquin (solid) and Algonquin Ornamented (shown) were cut by J.F. Cumming for the Dickinson TF (Boston).¹ A two-page spread demonstrating their dual-color use was advertised in the July 1890 edition of The Inland Printer.

THP Partner Alan Prescott has made three lovely versions of this face for multi-color projects: solid [background], ornamented [shown] and even an outline for a finishing touch!

¹Loy, W.E. (1898–1900): Designers and Engravers Of Type. In The Inland Printer, July 1898.

Catch an interesting thread at about Algonquin and other “footed latins.”
