EclipseThese handsome latin hunks strut dual-case alphabets in both the 3D and “plain” styles. Who could resist those macho hooked “C”s?

They were designed by Charles E. Heyer, who patented Eclipse Shaded in 1882 [USPTO D12804] and Eclipse in 1883–1884 [USPTO D14959]. He assigned the rights to Arthur M. and Alson E. Barnhart (by name), his employers since 1878.

Eclipse and his “big bro” were discontinued between the catalogs of 1900 and 1907.
