The Monotype is the machine that took the limitations out of
machine composition. Because of its completely flexible Mat-
rix system it gives the printer all the economies of machine
composition, while preserving all the freedom of hand com-
position. Below are shown just a few of the many possible
combinations of Monotype faces.

MATRIX CASE ARRANGEMENTS 31

The following tabulation gives the characters carried in the Matrix Case for the
different standard Matrix Case arrangements; for details of the position of these
characters in the Matrix Case see our book, "The Monotype System." The Key-
bars (^[32) and Stopbars (^[33) required are specified for each arrangement; where
the arrangement requires Matrices for modified characters (1J40), this also is noted.

Old Style Figures
characteristic of the old style figure

THE which has been handed down to us from the


earliest designs of old style type faces has
been the irregularity of ascending and descending
characters, usually termed old style or "hanging"
figures. Consequently, most of our old style faces
are shown here with the proper figures, that is,
the old style or hanging figures, as part of the font.
Recognizing that some printers desire to use a
lining figure, we have designed old style lining
figures for most of our old style faces. Specimens
of these will be found in the section of this speci-
men book devoted to figures and can be identified
by the symbol Gfollowing the point size in place
of F. In cases where an old style lining figure
has not been designed specially for the face
selected the figure specimen sheets will show the
face that is the best match.
In ordering old style matrices, whether in
partial or complete fonts, be sure and specify
old style lining figures if desired, giving their

Old Style Figures
characteristic of the old style figure

THE which has been handed down to us from the


earliest designs of old style type faces has
been the irregularity of ascending and descending
characters, usually termed old style or "hanging"
figures. Consequently, most of our old style faces
are shown here with the proper figures, that is,
the old style or hanging figures, as part of the font.
Recognizing that some printers desire to use a
lining figure, we have designed old style lining
figures for most of our old style faces. Specimens
of these will be found in the section of this speci-
men book devoted to figuresand can be identified
by the symbol G following the point size in place
of F. In cases where an old style lining figure
has not been designed specially for the face
selected the figure specimen sheets will show the
face that is the best match.
In ordering old style matrices, whether in
partial or complete fonts, be sure and specify
old style lining figures if desired, giving their
proper symbol; otherwise we always furnish
standard old style figures if made.

Old Style Figures
characteristic of the old style figure

THE which has been handed down to us from the


earliest designs of old style type faces has
been the irregularity of ascending and descending
characters, usually termed old style or "hanging"
figures. Consequently, most of our old style faces
are shown here with the proper figures, that is,
the old style or hanging figures, as part of the font.
Recognizing that some printers desire to use a
lining figure, we have designed old style lining
figures for most of our old style faces. Specimens
of these will be found in the section of this speci-
men book devoted to figures and can be identified
by the symbol G following the point size in place
of F. In cases where an old style lining figure
has not been designed specially for the face
selected the figure specimen sheets will show the
face that is the best match.
In ordering old style matrices, whether in
partial or complete fonts, be sure and specify
old style lining figures if desired, giving their
proper symbol; otherwise we always furnish
standard old style figures if made.

been the irregularity of ascending and descending
"
characters, usually termed old style or hanging"
figures. Consequently, most of our old style faces
are shown here with the proper figures, that is,
the old style or hanging figures, as part of the font.
Recognizing that some printers desire to use a
lining figure, we have designed old style lining
figures for most of our old style faces. Specimens
of these will be found in the section of this speci-
men book devoted to figures and can be identified
by the symbol G
following the point size in place
of F. In cases where an old style lining figure
has not been designed specially for the face
selected the figure specimen sheets will show the
face that is the best match.
In ordering old style matrices, whether in
partial or complete fonts, be sure and specify
old style lining figures if desired, giving their
proper symbol; otherwise we always furnish
standard old style figures if made.

THE ORIGINAL OLD CASLON
ON THE MONOTYPE

.HIS NEW MONOTYPE CASLON (the No. 337 Series) is a faithful


reproduction of a face that has steadfastly maintained its popularity in
spite of defilement by designers who have distorted this beautiful old
face to suit the so-called "standard line" and in other ways endeavored
to "modernize" a classic.

WE confidently rest our typographic reputation upon this real Caslon,


for,although these matrices have been made in the cellular sizes from
7 to 12 point, for use on a composing machine, surely there is nothing
"machinery" about the face here shown; all the charm of the original
hand-cut letters has been preserved.

CASLON should be set leaded, and therefore we have made the face with
its distinctive long descenders; for those who must set this face solid,
almost a desecration, we have provided, in the cellular point sizes, matrices
for the shortened descenders, but these are much less stubby than the
descenders of most of the modern adaptations of this face.

ONE other point should be noted; Caslon was made to be printed upon
hand-made paper there was no machine-finish in those good old days.
We have not attempted the impossible, to make a face that would be
Caslon under totally different printing conditions.

WE have two other Caslons, the Nos. 37 and I37E Series; therefore we
have made this new-old Caslon for our own satisfaction and to delight
those who love to mix type, paper and brains. To show the great differ-
ence that paper makes in this face we here print it both on antique and

CAUTION ON SWASH CHARACTERS: To cast the swash characters with the authentic close fitting, as originally designed by
William Caslon the First, requires that the Molds and Type-pusher Guide be altered to clear the extra long swash kern. The
Molds can be altered only in our factory and a nominal charge is made for this. The Type-pusher Guide can be altered by the
customer from directions which we will furnish, or, if preferred, a new one may be purchased. Molds made since February i,
1920, and Type-pusher Guides on machines number 6263 and following have these alterations. For machines of lower serial
number than 1203, additional alterations may be necessary, details of which will be furnished when required.
Old Style Figures
characteristic of the old style figure
which has been handed down to us from the
THE earliest designs of old style type faces has
been the irregularity of ascending and descending
characters, usually termed old style or "hanging"
figures. Consequently, most of our old style faces
are shown here with the proper figures, that is,
the old style or hanging figures, as part of the font.
Recognizing that some printers desire to use a
lining figure, we have designed old style lining
figures for most of our old style faces. Specimens
of these will be found in the section of this speci-
men book devoted to figures and can be identified
by the symbol G following the point size in place
of F. In cases where an old style lining figure
has not been designed specially for the face
selected the figure specimen sheets will show the
face that is the best match.
In ordering old style matrices, whether in
partial or complete fonts, be sure and specify
old style lining figures if desired, giving their
proper symbol; otherwise we always furnish
standard old style figures if made.

The Monotype, by its unit construction and flexible


Matrix System, fits the needs of the printer better
than any other composing machine.
Its Type-&-RuIe Caster supplies every workman
with all the material needed to carry out the Non-
distribution System and thus produce the maximum
number of salable hours with the minimum amount of
physical effort.
Incidentally, the service feature of the Monotype
is a big help to the salesman. It attracts work to
the office and creates satisfied customers, while the
quality of the product commands the price.

Old Style Figures
characteristic of the old style figure
which has been handed down to us from the
THE earliest designs of old style type faces has
been the irregularity of ascending and descending
characters, usually termed old style or "hanging"
figures. Consequently, most of our old style faces
are shown here with the proper figures, that is,
the old style or hanging figures, as part of the font.
Recognizing that some printers desire to use a
lining figure, we have designed old style lining
figures for most of our old style faces. Specimens
of these will be found in the section of this speci-
men book devoted to figures and can be identified
by the symbol G following the point size in place
of F. In cases where an old style lining figure
has not been designed specially for the face
selected the figure specimen sheets will show the
face that is the best match.
In ordering old style matrices, whether in
partial or complete fonts, be sure and specify
old style lining figures if desired, giving their
proper symbol; otherwise we always furnish
standard old style figures if made.
