Caslon Specimen Sheet

WILLIAM CASLON'S FIRST specimen sheet came out in 1734. On is specimen sheet Caslon showed not only a wide range of Roman and italic text and display sizes but also fonts of Hebrew, Greek, Armenian, Syriac, Gothic, Coptic, Saxon, Samaritan, and Arabic. Caslon was putting his competitors out of business at this time while his business was growing.
