This is a rare early 8 line/pica font of 19th century wood type. It is a rounded gothic with an open shade. I am told it is shown in the 1858 specimen book of David Knox & Company, a very early producer of wood type in the United States. Apparently that same year their factory was washed away by a flood after a mill dam broke and they closed for good. This font pre-dates the use of the pantograph router in wood type production. Being approximately 155 years old, this font has some wear from use. There are couple of characters with cracks or blemishes and the Q has damage to the descender.
Please have a look at my other listings for more wood type and letterpress related items.
