Etruscan No 4

Specimen of Etruscan No 4, 6 line

This type measures 6 line in size and was produced with the end-cut method. The type block is stamped Page & Co., Greenville, Ct. which was used by Page and Basset between 1857–1859.

This face was first shown as wood type by William H. Page in his 1872  Wood Type.

This cut of Etruscan No 4 was not shown in either  American Wood Type  or the folio.

Type name used by manufacturer:

Morgans & Wilcox Etruscan  [3213]

Page Etruscan No 4  [314]

This is the Page cut.

The manufacturing stamp found on this type was used predominately between 1857–1859, though there are several unexplained instances where it is used on type first introduced after 1870, as this example illustrates.
