I have been dedicated to investigating Portuguese type specimens for about a decade, having sponsored their digitization in some libraries. I have already written two small articles about two foundries and at this moment I’m writing about another one. I found catalogs in Spain, France, and the United States, and since the big collectors are here, I decided to ask for help trying to find more. For example, recently I noticed one that was on the site of a used bookstore in Toronto, Canada, but I was too late- someone bought it!
My question is:: does anyone here have Portuguese type specimens in their collections, or do they know where they might be? Some companies like Imprensa Nacional Casa da Moeda, A FUNTIPO, Gini, Fundição Manuel Guedes, Fundição tipográfica Portuense and Fundição tipográfica Portuguesa.
Any information that helps to locate a catalog is welcome.
