early 20th century.
Gift of Maurice Annenberg.
These sorts are drawn from a double case containing 48 drawers of wood type donated in 1974 to RBS (then the Book Arts Press at Columbia University) by the Baltimore printer Maurice Annenberg (1907–1979). They are often used for printing demonstrations, workshops, and instruction in RBS courses, such as “The History of 19th- and 20th-Century Typography & Printing,” taught by Katherine McCanless Ruffin and John Kristensen.
