“This face was first shown as wood type by William H. Page in James Conner’s Sons Typographic Messenger, Vol.2 No.1 (November, 1866). Kelly noted that the Gothic Tuscan style was first shown in the lighter and more condensed style by Bill, Stark & Co. in their 1853 specimen. Though it seems almost all manufacturers named the style Gothic Tuscan, Kelly referred to this style, more descriptively as Concave Tuscan.” [RRKWTC]
Not to be confused with Gothic Tuscan Condensed, which is a different style.
