THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY
Fleischman saw the enlargement of the range of Black Letters as his first task.
In 1743 he added the small Pica Black Letter N0.558 (figs. 215 and 225, pp. 215 and 221), and
the next year, in time for the specimen-book of 1744/ he finished the Pica Black Letter
N0.560 (fig. 226, p. 221) and the English-bodied віасіе Letter N0.561 (fig. 229). The Pica is still
used for Bibles (fig. 227, p. 222) and for the quarto edition of the book of Psalms
with music (fig. 228, p. 223), which Enschedé printed for the first time in 1777. The
specimen of 1744 is an octavo book showing all the types that Fleischman had cut
for earlier employers and the Black Letters he had made for Enschedé. His titling
capitals (see p. 216) had had Greek letters added to them in the meantime. As
adapted to Greek they are the Two-line Small Pica Greek Titling Capitals No. ц and the Two-
line Brevier Greek Titling Capitals No. 75 of our inventory (figs. 230,231).
The second of Enschedé's specimen-books is dated 1748, but was not ready until
the following year.2 It illustrates the accessions to the series of Black Letters, a
Roman for Bourgeois body and Psalm-notes on Large English body (Two-line
Minion). My notes record the cutting by Fleischman of Psalm-notes for Great
Primer, but they are not in this specimen-book.3
The new faces by Fleischman were these as numbered in our inventory and in
order of date:4

Fig. 231. Two-line Brevier Greek Titling Capitals no. 75, cut by Fleischman.
Cut in 1744 : Great Primer Black Letter No. 562 (fig. 232), Paraxon Black Letter No. 563 (fig. 233).
Cut in 1745: Bourgeois Roman N0.76 (figs. 234, 235, p. 226), a superb letter and one
that Enschedé thought ideal for a newspaper. It first appeared in Enschedé's news¬
paper, the oprechte Haerlemse Courant, on 1 March 1746 (fig. 236, p. 227).I
Cut in 1746: Psalm-notes on [Large] English body or Two-line Minion (fig. 237, p. 228).
By this time Enschedé may have made up his mind to print the Psalms for four
voices, though he did so first in 1753 (figs. 238,239, p. 228). In his specimen-book of
1768 he added a foot-note to the specimen ofthe Groóte Augustyn Nooten-Letteren (Letter-
notes on [Large] English body) meaning that they were cut by Fleischman in 1752,
specially for the book of Psalms for four voices.
Cut in 1747 : sorts with long ascending and descending strokes to fit the Great
Primer Italic and make it serve for Paragon Italic No. jj (fig. 240, p. 228).
