A challenge for you all!

Have hit a wall trying to identify this 12line Delittle wood type. Missing Q and Z.

Any help would be much appreciated.

It looks like the press has the chase in it. Do you have access to it? If so, measure the inside dimensions of the chase, and that is the printing size.

Please excuse me if you already know this, but just because the chase is a certain size, doesn’t mean that you should try to print something with a lot of ink coverage which is that big. Usually with a platen press such as that one, the total amount of ink coverage of a job (the total of the actual area of the inked surfaces on your plate) should not be more than about 1/4 of the chase size. (That is not true for a cylinder press - you can print bigger images with one of those).
