Black and white public domain drop cap letter U image. This fancy letter U image was from a text which had 12 other drop cap letters. While this image is slightly different from the others, they are all the same shape and size with a chiseled looking letter and curling vines. The other letter images include: B, C, E, H, I, L, M, N, O, S and T.
All of these letter images were included in the 1872 publicaiton A Book of Emblems with Interpretations Thereof. It remains unclear if the publishers Bell and Daldy used letters from a print foundry, they were drawn by the author Alfred Gatty (1809-1873) or they were drawn by some un-named artist.
