Here's a hardly used set of calligraphy items for sale. Mom started this as a hobby way back, never got very far and quit, but saved this stuff anyway. Nice gift for a collector, art student, or someone getting into calligraphy.

Pen set #1) Osmiroid #75 Fountain pen Deluxe Lettering Set, in box, by E.S. Perry Ltd. and Hunt Manufacturing. Copyright date on box is 1974. Classic vintage pen, with 6 nibs/tips, 22k gold plated, most weren't even used as near as I can tell. There's Italic Broad, Medium, and Fine Straight nibs, and B2, B3, B4. Plunger still works, has been flushed out. Did not test the nibs for writing (B2 was on the pen, worked fine for flushing, now in the box holder), but they're clean and should be fine. Original box has some wear as shown, nib holder has a tear between 2 holes. Has the clear plastic cover, but photographs better without it. Cover has tape on one side. No obvious markings on the pen or shirt clip, nice and clean. Mom started this as a hobby way back, never got very far and quit, but saved this stuff anyway. Nice gift for a collector, art student, or someone getting into calligraphy. Seen this pen set sell from $25-$45, depending on box condition it appears

1b) Bottle of Parker Quink w/Solv-X washable Royal Blue ink, 2 oz/57ML, 3/4 full? You can see the ink line just above the label in the pic. Perfectly liquid still.

1c) Speedball Textbook for Pen and Brush Lettering, 20th Edition, last copyright date is 1972. 5 3/4"x6 1/2", 96 pages of styles of lettering to practice with. Excellent condition.

1d) Calligraphy, the Ken Brown Handbook, 1977 first edition, product #3070. 8.5"x11". Excellent condition, one small kink spot along top edge. 32 pages of how to, styles, examples, practice page etc..

1e) The Ken Brown Calligraphy Practice Paper pad. 9"x12", all 48 pages are there. Top left corner got bumped, so has bends about 1 1/4" in, all the way through (affects that corner of the pages too) otherwise clean, pages are still white. Only found 3 of these on the 'River' site, for a ridiculous $60(!?), when generics sell for $7-$12 a pad for this size.

Would prefer to sell this group as 1 lot. Based on sold prices for the pieces, without added shipping too, am asking on the lower end...$50
Can break it up if need be.
