Surely the greatest collection of Victorian monograms created, this book contains the entire contents of four different Victorian era collections. This gives a vast survey of Victorian lettering styles, monograms and intertwined marks that would orginally have been used for decoration and identification on jewellery and silver, clothing, as embroidery, for seals and marks of all kinds.
These are original and authentic resources from the era: more than 2,500 monogrammatic and alphabetic designs, originally published between 1830 and 1881.
Motifs include every two-letter combination as well as an extensive selection of three- and four-letter combos, plus crowns, crests, coats of arms, and helmets. Includes two helpful indexes.Illustrations: 2500 monograms and similar devices
