I purchased a Ludlow machine from John Dickinsons, Apsley, Hertfordshire, England, in the 1970's. Also twenty cabinets of matrices, each holding thirty founts. With the machine came a large hardwood chest full of cleaning tools and spares. This chest had a compartment which held a list of all the founts in the line casting department of the composing room, and with it was this type specimen catalogue.
I particularly like the letter that Ludlow printed and included, from one of their apparently satisfied customers. (see attached).
