[At the Stichting Museum Enschedé at Haarlem a type-fount named 'Augustin Romein no. 6' (more widely known as Schoeffer-letter or Quentell-letter) is preserved made by Johannes I Enschedé in 1786 from historic matrices once the property of the printers' family Scheffers at 's-Hertogenbosch. On the basis of this fount, an imperfect set of characters, a replica was produced by Johan Enschedé & Sons around 1900 consisting of the available characters; the set was completed with characters of their own design. This reproduction, further enlarged and revised in the course of time, has played a remarkable part in the history of 'fine printing', especially in the Netherlands. This totally revised history of the old matrices, of the fount produced by Johannes I Enschedé, and of its reproduction, incidentally reveals how unsafe it is from now on to rely on the sources hitherto considered authoritative in this matter., At the Stichting Museum Enschedé at Haarlem a type-fount named 'Augustin Romein no. 6' (more widely known as Schoeffer-letter or Quentell-letter) is preserved made by Johannes I Enschedé in 1786 from historic matrices once the property of the printers' family Scheffers at 's-Hertogenbosch.
