iBookBinding is on holiday from the 21st of December to the 7th of January. You will still be able to place an order during this period, but all orders will be processed after we return! Due to the high pressure on postal services during this high season, please be advised that delivery of your order may be delayed. On average, it takes around a week for an order to be delivered to the EU, 1-2 weeks for addresses in the US and Canada, and 1-3 weeks for the rest of the world. But during the Holiday Season, it may take longer.

Antique DeLittle wooden type, produced either in the late 19th century or early 20th century.

Art Sans Condensed Bold; DeLittle; Sans Serif; 15 Cicero (67,67 mm)

Type height: 0.918 inches (23.3 mm), but the current type height stands at ~23,15 mm, probably due to the prior use.
68 letters, 8 punctuation marks.
Completely missing letters: A, D, J, K.
One of the Qs was obviously a bit deformed and reshaped.

You can order this type either with the case or without the case.
The case is in useable condition, but there are some cracks in the bottom of the case, and it is obviously used.

“In 1888, Robert [Duncan] DeLittle set up his woodletter factory in York, and became the largest and most innovative manufacturer of wood type in this country. His market was primarily large sizes of poster types, used in the theatre, the countryside and politics.” — The Type Archive

“Robert James DeLittle was grandson of the founder, was the last owner and operator of the last wood type manufacturer in England.” — David Shields
