    Indeed! Very early on Hardwicke's Science Gossip started to have engraved Initials for each new issue.

    So they made woodblocks for each letter of the alphabet - which they would be able to use whenever needed.

    Would be interesting to get the whole alphabet - to see how each letter was engraved

    Yeah, it would be awesome!! I think I saw more of them repeating but have to go through my Recents to find them. Let's collect them as #alphabet

    I started a collection with this in mind! I'll tag them. Good idea. 😃
