Frankenstein font help please...

Feb 28, 2011 at 18:32


I'm trying to find out what font the first edition of Frankenstein was set in... Or at least something similar.

Any help or suggestions would be massively appreciated.

The closest you will get is Century Schoolbook or one of its variants

Whittingham BQ - "Whittingham is a rendition of the type used around 1840 by Charles Whittingham, founder of the Chiswick Press in Birmingham " (expensive)

New Caledonia - "William A. Dwiggins designed Caledonia for Linotype in 1939. Initially, he had intended to blend the elements of Scotch Roman". Scotch Roman is derived from a face cut and cast by the Scotch foundry of A. Wilson & Son at Glasgow before 1833.
