A recent post by jch02140 identified this design as Constantine, which was patented by Andrew Little (Farmer, Little & Co.) in 1871 [USPTO D5450]. It is illustrated in the book of specimens published by Ron Yablon,¹ and his discovery prompted me to update it.

This super-valuable resource, suggested by THP Partner Brian Bonislawsky, surely bears a fresh look. Revival developers may want to download an online PDF as a “quick ‘n’ dirty” scanned preview of available high-resolution working specimens.

Bookmarks identify known tradenames, historical info and revival status. Faces not yet digitized are coded with symbols indicating relative importance to The Type Heritage Project. Red rectangles indicate links to forum topics, flickr specimens, etc.
