A typographical specimen book showing the unit-set types developed by Linn Boyd Benton under the trade name "Self Spacing" type. It is undated, but loosely slipped into it is a page listing users of "Benton's Self Spacing Type" which has on its back a letter to Benton, Waldo and Co. dated Dec. 18, 1886. A portion of the text of this letter would seem to be the original copy for the showing of Self Spacing Old Style Italic on page 14 of this specimen.
