Hi all,

I'm researching the history of stamp albums and would like to know which font the Scott Publishing Company used for its postage stamp albums in the late 19th/early 20th century. Attached is an image from one of their album pages. De Vinne seems to be a close match, but would love to hear what others have to say. Thanks!

You’ve IDed it yourself—De Vinne does seem to be a match. Romana is also very similar.

Personally, I find the secondary type (Watermarked... and the dates) more interesting. Would you have a larger image to share?
