This is a wonderful, older book called simply BOOK OF ALPHABETS published by Regan Publications in Chicago. I don't find a date in it, but it kind of feels like the 1940's or 50's. It has over 100 different styles of alphabets - very useful in the days before PCs!!
The inside cover page says it is 'An excellently compiled list of alphabets for the use of architects, draughtsmen and students in lettering... Contains a variety of styles both modern and antique for commercial or decorative purposes...'
That pretty much sums up the content. It is a beatiful collection, and would make a great gift for anyone interested in graphic arts.
Let me know if you have any questions.
