Typo: A Monthly Newspaper and Literary Review, Volume 3

[The title-page of Barton's History of New South Wales reviewed]

Mr Charles Potter, the New South Wales Government Printer, has sent Typo a parcel of circulars and opinions of the press relating to Mr Barton's History of New South Wales. This important work is not to exceed thirteen volumes, to be published at fifteen shillings each, and the first is now ready. We cannot review any part of the of the book except the title-page, a fac-simile of which accompanies the circular, and upon this we remark that we do not like the two main lines in an American heavy old English. In that character they should have been printed in red. The letter itself, too, is a hybrid extended style—the cap. S in particular being a nondescript letter.
