Dr. Todd Samuelson, our eMOP book history consultant, recently completed his eMOP research trip to Amsterdam, Antwerp, and London. After intensive discussion and preparation with the eMOP team, he travelled to Europe in November 2013 to hunt for information and pictures of early modern specimen sheets. Specimen sheets, or type specimens, were circulated in the early modern period to advertise available typefaces for printers, and specimen sheets constitute a number of the OCR training that the eMOP team has completed over the past few months.
