JulieThis jovial dual-case European tuscan, once known as Ornamented No. 1540, was designed by German immigrant Henry Brehmer. He patented it in March–April, 1876 and assigned the rights to David Wolfe Bruce of George Bruce’s Son & Company (New York) [USPTO D9184].

Nicolette Gray writes that it was shown (tradename unidentified) by Miller & Richard (Edinburgh, San Francisco) in c1883.¹ It’s so nice that Dan X. Solo named it twice: Julie and Eclair.² Since Eclair is the tradename of a 20th-century face, Julie is selected.

An important anonymous THP Partner has rescued this endangered typeface for use by future typographers who value its Victorian heritage.
