New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have an old copy of Fowler's Modern English Usage dated 1926, and I wondered whether it's possible to say what kind of fonts they were using back then. It's not too easy to find out: were they using big machines such as Linotypes?
I also wonder about the relationship between Clarendon Press and the Clarendon Font, particularly for 1926 (because the word Clarendon seems to be related mostly to 19th century fonts).
