Linotype, Type specimens, Mergenthaler Linotype Company
"This book is planned as a reference tool. It may well be considered as a dictionary and digest of Linotype faces. It is organized to reveal information quickly and help every Linotype user. The arrangement of specimens is by series for ready reference and comparison purposes. Point sizes available in each series are listed in sequence, followed by specimens of additional combinations, when available...The basic information about each face is supplied by brief one-line specimens with attendant data: triangle number and code word for ordering facility, and alphabet length and figure size for utility needs. In every instance where alignment, body size or descenders differ from the norm, that fact is clearly stated."
