Historic Sheet Music Font ID Requested - multiple styles

jjdewtt's picture

Any assistance IDing any and all of these historic fonts in these two images would be greatly appreciated. Is there a good source/library for buying/downloading these types of historic fonts in one location?

Thanks so much.

COURLANDER issimilar to, but not identical with Figgins Tuscan.

and to think we complain about people mixing too many fonts together nowadays.

Well, if there is a good way to use lots of fonts on one page, this is it!
It's to my shame that I can't readily name any of them, though. I'm certain portions, if not the entirety, were hand-engraved, but using some published guide as an example.

if you do a search for "specimen book" with media type "Texts", you will find a number of old type specimen books from the right period available for download.

Thanks for all of your help. Great resources! I have gone through many books at archive.org. Love it!

Any further assistance would be appreciated IDing these fonts. I have the blackletter for fantastiques but am still struggling to find the others (or close representations).

The books are archive.org have these flourishes and rules as well. I'm curious if there is a resource for a vector version of these kinds of flourishes in this style somewhere? I have found several flourishes around but none in this style.

Thanks.

For the copperplate flourishes, check out Andreas Seidel’s Ornaments Accolades.
