He who misses this great set of drop cap letter images may be missing out on something unique. This drop cap, fancy letter H image takes a somewhat common block letter and fancies it up with some additional artwork at the top and bottom.
Along with this great fancy letter H image, there are 11 other letter images which include: A, C, D, G, I, J, M, O, P, T and W.
This set of fancy letters were all used in the 1881 book How a Little Boy Learned to Be Wise and Good. It was written by Helen Cross Knight (1814-1906). These images are most likely from the publisher Thomas Nelson and Sons.
