Does anyone have more specific information as to the writing styles prominently used in France during Napoleon Bonaparte's lifetime? And the dip pen Nib type they used, and modern close equivalents?
All I have to go on are photographs of Napoleon and contemporary's letters.
this one looks like a roundhand with Pfannenfeder type nib? or Italic stub?
So the first question is, what types of nibs did people in that era use? or was it just a variety of everything except copperplate types?
