 +====== Diamond ======
 +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]]. ​
