This ad for an automatic sheet feeder, manufactured by T.W. & G.B. Sheridan, appears in the October 1896 issue of The Inland Printer. Maybe I’m reading too much into their type choice, but Inland, with its wavy counters, is just so on the nose for a machine that loads paper into a printer. The typeface was fresh on the market, having been patented just the year before. The drop caps are set in Florentinebeside text in Jenson Old Style or something very similar.
