Wells & Webb [Ebenezer Webb]

Ebenezer Webb was an American wood type designer/manufacturer from the 19th century. Successor of Darius Wells in 1859. Webb died in 1864 and his entire inventory of wood type was bought by Heber Wells, youngest son of Darius. The company was called Wells & Webb. Examples from their 1854 catalog: Antique Tuscan Extended.
