Just wanted to share this, I don't recall it being posted here before.

from the post:
<<'Schrift- und Polytypen-Proben' (1848) {Fonts and examples of different type} --- appears to be a fairly comprehensive model-book or copy-book aimed at printers. It contains a wide variety of fonts and typographic elements, decorative borders, printer's ornaments, page cornices, emblems, shields, trophies and pendants, as well as what look like Victorian clip-art motifs.>>
