Fig. 369. Script Initials cut by Matthias Rosart.
Two-line English Script No. 8^ (fig. 370), which my ancestor liked so much that he bought
a strike for it. Then Rosart went to Brussels and his dealings with our foundry
ceased. Thereafter he was fully occupied supplying the needs of De Boubers ; and as
I have said, strikes of some of the faces that he cut for De Boubers also reached the
typefoundry that was sold in Amsterdam in 1795. They passed to the firm of Ploos
van Amstel, and two of them, which occur also in the specimens of De Boubers,
are shown in figs. 371,372, p. 292.
Finally, the specimen of Harmsen et Cie. of Amsterdam, successors to Jan de
Groot at the Hague, a firm to be dealt with later, contains a type by Matthias Rosart
which are now our Decorated Capitals on Two-line Long Primer No. Ц6 (fig. 373, p. 292).
Before leaving the subjeft of the two Rosarts, I should mention a Pica Greek, No. 601
of our inventory shown in fig. 374, p. 292, which belonged to Ploos van Amstel.
