This essay by Julius Rosenberg first appeared in a gathering of essays in honor of Karl Klingspor entitled, In der Schmiede der Schrift: Karl Klingspor und sein Werk (1940); the translation is Duensing's, who felt it would be of interest to "Those in America whose interests lie in the fields of type founding and the story of letterforms."
