At the antiquarian book fare in Stockholm the past weekend, I came across this book in a shelf. The title page caught my attention because of a peculiar hyphen.
The compound "Mynt-Cabinettet" (Coin Cabinet) has the hyphen positioned on the baseline. Has anyone seen something like this before? Is it common? I assume the placement of the hyphen is due to the following C.
I apologise for the poor quality of the picture, taken with my five-year-old Nokia. I did not think to write down the text, because I was sure I would be able to read it in the picture. Anyway, I believe the book is a late 19th century publication, possibly early 20th.
