Composite Condensed

Specimen of Composite Condensed

This type measures 6 line in size and was produced with the end-cut method. The type block is stamped Wm. H. Page & Co. which was used by Page and Mowry between 1870–1876.

This face was first shown as wood type by William H. Page in his 1870 Specimens of Wood Type.

This cut of German was not shown in either  American Wood Type  or the folio.

Type name used by manufacturer:

Page Composite Condensed [606]

This is the Page cut.

Page appears to be the only wood type manufacturer to produce this face. Hamilton offered it after the acquisition in 1891.

Composite Condensed is a Schwabacher style blackletter.
