"Art Monograms and Lettering"

Here's a few more books that WVEngraver found... (thanks Chris :smile[2]
"A new book of cyphers" - published 1726 (contains over 600 illustrations)

Monograms & ciphers ([1906]) I was delighted to see that this book contains examples of corporate monograms and the use of the "ampersand" in monograms.

The book of ornamental alphabets, ancient and mediaeval, from the eighth century. (published 1914)
A very cool old book which contains official alphabets of different monarchies through the ages.

Microscope information

An optivisor is an inexpensive way to magnify. There are replaceable, lenses of different strength for them. 
McMaster has them. www.mcmaster.com.  Enter page 2250 at the  McMaster site.
On that page they are called "Headband Flip-UP Magnifiers".
