Early 19th century font

Peter Van Lancker's picture

Purely out of historical interest, I would like to know more about this font. It was owned by one of the biggest 19th century Brussels printers. Was it used elsewhere? Is it a copy (Belgian printing industry was notorious for its illegal copying of mainly French books)? Would you consider it original (Belgium was one of the first industrial countries in the world: they certainly had the technology). Thank you in advance.

They used it too long for me to tell from this. How much do you have?

I have one booklet (1825), parts of it (first and last) are more in Didot style. I could make extra scans if you want or lend you the booklet.
