|+||The name of a type one size smaller than [[p:pearl|Pearl]], and the smallest that is cast in the British founderies. It originated in [[c:casting|casting]] a type with a pearl face upon a smaller body, for the purpose of[[g:get-in| getting in]], in printing pocket Bibles; the founders subsequently cut it with a smaller face, and made it completely a distinct size. It is not enumerated in Moxon's list. //See// [[t:types|Types]]. |
