An artistic, easily-read type, Caslon has had two centuries of ever-increasing popularity in our own country -- it is of interest to note that the first copies of the Declaration of Independence and the first paper currency distributed to the citizens of the new-born nation were printed in this type face."--A note on the type in which this book is set.
