Type 6:125R bei Ulrich Han (Rom, Offizin 2)
|Bezeichnung (nach GW)||Type 6:125R|
|Größe (20 Z.)||125mm|
126 R. [P. 6], large text type. The capitals are those of 103 R. [P. 4] (Type 4:103R), but the lower case is considerably larger.
Two forms of single Qu, one with u close to Q, the other with the tail of Q just reaching under u; separate Qu is
found occasionally; a and e (rounded) are proportionately narrower than the rest of the lower case, h has rounded
tail level with line, s seems to lean to the left and has long serifs, y has straight tail, ę is common; double slanting
hyphen. Used in the 1473 Vergil (IB. 17296 = M49748),
the 1474 Lactantius (IB. 17303 = M16537), and an undated Aeneas Syluius,
Epistola ad Mahumetem (= M33656). It appears to have been soon abandoned, probably because of its size. Later on it
102 R. [P. 7] (Type 7:102R), on a smaller body, and with smaller forms of the long minuscules (b, d, f, g, h, 1, p, q, f); ę is not found. In use in 1477 and J478.
