      Sorry for the additional word tracking and "what the hell is
      B42?"(without explanation).

      B42 is the bibliographic notation for the 42-Line Bible, aka the
      Mazarin Bible, or as commonly known (and somewhat of a misnomer) the
      Gutenberg Bible. These very early printed works did not carry titles
      and are known retroactively by bibliographic reference. Most early
      typefaces as well, though the Aldine period, are coded rather than
      named (since they never were named).
