For we encounter not only strangely shaped and elaborate letters but also very precise and dramatic creations which un mistakably foreshadow the Japanese in fluence evident in the far later Eckmann-let- ters. And even the entirely matter-of-fact ap pearance of other designs betrays a clear tendency towards the evolution of those grotesques which play a dominating role today. Therefore it would seem to us that we ought to revise our judgement on those early lettered type-faces. True, most of them do not yet possess a consistent design, but many of them already contain the seeds of many good and promising developments whose final fruits we encounter many years later. Truth and fairness demand that in ret rospect we regard even the seeming chaos of those days as a valuable phase in the con sistent and organic development of European lettering.
