that he and Alberts had produced at the Hague. I say 'almost', for there are small
differences and among them some reçut lower-case letters in this Paragon Italic.
The original capitals were not an ornament to the face ; and later, when the Brothers
Ploos van Amstel acquired Uytwerf's matrices, they left the Paragon Italic out of
their specimens. Only when they issued a supplement to their specimen-book of
1784 did they find a place for this early Italic but with new capitals made for it by
Rosart's son, Matthias (fig. 295, p. 257).x The type so refashioned was afterwards
used by our firm as the companion Italic for Paragon Roman No. 786. It is now the
Paraxon Italic No. j88 of our inventory (fig. 296, p. 257).
We have several of the types that were cut for Pfeiffer by Rosart between 174Г8]
and 1752. First, there is a lower case added to the capitals originally cut as titling
capitals on Four-line Small Pica. With the lower case the face is shown by Pfeiffer
and Ploos van Amstel as Missaal Roman.2 It is now our Four-line Pica Roman N0.789
(figs. 297, 298). Besides that we have as numbered in our inventory the Pica Roman
No. jyo, the Small Pica Roman No. 791 and Italic No. 792, the Kleine Dessendiaan (Small
Pica) Roman No. j^ and italic No. 794, the Long Primer Roman No. 795, the same as the
preceding but with shortened letters, the Pica Black Letter No. J96, and the Small Pica
віаск Letter No. jyj. These relics of the Pfeiffer Foundry are shown in figs. 299—315,
