Did you do this?
From what sources?
Just curious.
As a comparison, for people which could be unfamiliar with those fonts, here’s a sample from http://folklore.org/StoryView.py?project=Macintosh&story=World_Class_Cit...

Nope, not me, ones that have the different names are from http://www.kreativekorp.com/software/fonts/urbanrenewal.shtml

...the ones with the same name I got from www.fontpalace.com

Back in the first Macintosh days and the Imagewriter dot matrix printer, the fonts were all bitmap, and to print one size on the Imagewriter, one had to also have a font size twice as big....the Imagewriter used that double size font to make the output higher quality. I used the later Imagewriter II.
