About 40 fonts of Brass and Zinc type for hot foil stamping and leather tooling. Not all is identified as of yet, for that matter it's not all sorted yet and is mostly European in origin. This came from St. Teresa's Press, a Carmelite Monastery in Flemington, NJ. The Sisters threw this in the deal when I bought the Little Giant from them. Wonderful stuff for the book restoration and repair work I used to do as well as the new books I produce..
Some of it is available for sale if you're interested I've recently added a page
Also, many interesting decorative caps, ornaments and border material to compliment the serifed body type. showing a few fonts I've sorted out and priced.
