To all type enthousiasts!
The North-Holland Archives
house the collection of the famous Haarlem based Typefoundry and printer Joh. Enschedé. Within this collection there's a subcollection of over 2000 historical type-specimen from different typefoundries from the Netherlands/all over Europe between 1700-1990.
The inventory of this subcollection is now online (in Dutch, but searchable by names, titles and dates), and free digital scans of any type specimen can be requested by anyone.
Feel free to browse through the collection here
. As an example, you can view the digitized type-specimen by Enschedé from 1768 here
