Chuck Creesy has an article "Monticello: The History of a Typeface" in Printing History 49 (Volume 25, No. 1). It is a nice write up on the several revivals of a font family from Binny & Ronaldson, America's first (successful) type foundry. Also some of the story about C. H. Griffith's and P. J. Conkwright's collaboration of bringing out Linotype Monticello, and the latest revival by Matthew Carter.
