An 1866 publification but whats the Font? (Reading without Tears)

Recommended Posts


This book was published in 1866 and was allegedly used to help teach reading to Winston Churchill although with little success. I would very much like to know what font was used.

There are at least five typefaces in your sample—are you interested in identifying all of them, or just a few in paticular?

As a one time employee of a national newspaper in production management who sticks to Times Roman I would like to know a little about them all if you have the time.  Many thanks.
