Facsimile reprint of “1848 George Bruce’s Son & Co. Type Specimen Book”

Does anyone know where I can purchase this facsimile online, or if there is a way to contact Mr. David W. Peat via email for ordering?

I am living in Asia so I cannot personally visit his shop to order.

Thanks for the help.

I don’t see the Bruce one, but some of his other specimen reprints can be purchased from the Hamilton Wood Type Museum’s website.

Don’t miss the Heber Wells wood type catalog that is listed elsewhere in New Arrivals.


Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the info. I do have all the other facsimile reprints listed currently in Hamilton Wood Type Museum online shop. I am just lacking this particular reprint of George Bruce Type specimen.

I am really interested in getting a copy. Wondering if Mr. David Peat has an email address that can be reached?

Best Regards,
