I have a printing plate from the title page of Festoons of Fancy, William Littell, 1814, Louisville, Ky. I have been told that the title page would have been typeset and not printed from a plate. Have researched endlessly on line with very little success. Can it be determined by looking at the book which printing method was used? Thank you in advance for your time and any insight you can provide. See image.
