Six bound scrapbook volumes containing prospectuses, advertisements, letterhead, announcements, printed type specimens, pamphlets, circular letters, price lists, press clippings, off-prints, photographs, and some correspondence, documenting the first decade of the firm Continental Typefounders Association. In addition to corporate history, the volumes show, through announcements, news clippings, and his published writings, Cary's national and international travels to lecture on type design, his encouragement of the incorporation of modern typefaces in advertising, and his lobbying to reduce the tariff on imports (1929-1930). The scrapbooks also contain a range of material on the life and work of type designer Frederic W. Goudy, whose Village Foundry typefaces were distributed exclusively through the Continental Typefounders Association.
