The shaded caps are from Souvenir, a typeface patented in December 1884 and credited to Andrew Little of Farmer, Little & Company in New York. “This Eve” is set in Bowl, shown by the same foundry in 1887. It’s a wide Latin with curved strokes, angled serifs, and some decorative dots, but otherwise similar to Washington (Central, 1886). The italic is unidentified – it appears to be a precursor to designs like Bell or Austin. “Yours truly” and “Please answer” is lettering.
