Just as the subject suggests, can anyone help me uncover the history of the Spurred R?
Not that I think I would know, but: what does it look like?
Just about the only thing Google has to say about the "spurred R" is right here on typophile in this thread and in this one; http://typophile.com/node/97883
Going out on a limb, it seems like just a one of a a number ways of stylizing a classic Roman R, as on a well known column erected to commemorate the subjugation of the pesky Dacians by Imperator Caesar Nerva Traianus Divi Nervae filius Augustus.
