1751 GLC Copperplate

What is the 1751 GLC Copperplate font?

This family was inspired by an engraved plate from Diderot & Dalembert’s Encyclopedia (publication beginning in 1751), illustrating the chapter devoted to letter engraving techniques. The plate bears two engravers names : “Aubin” (may be one of the four St Aubin brothers ?)and “Benard” ( which name is present below all plates of the Encyclopedia printed in Geneva ). It seems to be a transitional type, but different from Fournier or Grandjean.
Small caps are included in fonts for TTF and OTF version, separate files are included in the family sets of the Mac TT version.
