In the 1884 Hamilton & Katz Specimens of Holly Wood Type, multiple catalog numbers, No 12 and No 13, are listed for what seem to be the same design of Ionic Condensed. These multiple numbers were replaced with the single No 182 in the 1889 Specimens of Wood Type and Borders. No 182 is used here in this list as it was the only number for this cut used by Hamilton in specimen books after 1889.
