Historical accuracy question

roland_scriver's picture

I am trying to find an example of the layout of an act of parliament from the years 17th and 18th centuries. I intend to letterpress a copy of the Witchcraft act of 1604 and of 1736 and I want to at least get some of the details right, such as the choice of fount. Can anyone help me?

there was a book at the Univeristy of Reading Uk library
called something like 'English Courthand of the 15-16 century"
