A card typeface designed by Nicholas J. Werner and introduced by Inland in 1898. Named for a printer in Nashville, Tennessee. Similar to Engravers Roman (BB&S, 1899). “Like a number of other such faces, it has no lowercase but was cast in several sizes on each of several bodies so numerous cap-and-small-cap combinations could easily be made. This style was popular for stationery and business forms. Hansen called the face Plate Roman. On Linotype and Intertype Bold Face No.9 is essentially the same face but a little narrower; typesetters not infrequently call it Engravers Roman.” – McGrew
