The metal type in this photograph is Diethelm Antiqua, 48pt Didot/Cicero, It was used to print a broadside honoring the University of North Carolina University Librarian at her retirement, in 2016. It's a quote from the writer Shelby Foote, UNC Class of 1939.
Since the print shop has not sold as a unit, the metal type is now available case-by-case. I'll be assigning prices in the days ahead. Inquire about specific items in the meantime. I've decided to keep the American type-high metal type, but sell most of the type at European type-high of 0.928 inches [didot/cicero]. A variable bed height Vandercook can use this type, as can my Gietz Model 60.
I'd rather not send this type out of the US - international shipping costs are painful to contemplate.
