This broadside offers used type of numerous font styles and sizes.  The local newspaper shop, which produced the broadside, cleverly used funny phrases and grand words to catch the eye of potential customers.  For example, “Boldly by Battle Besieged Belgrade” is set in Extra Condensed, and “Do Unto Others, as a Bird in the Hand Knows his Own Son” is set in Nonpareil French Clarendon. For just one adoption, you get over fifty fonts!
