I don't know if Linotype had previously digitized. I understand that
Princeton University Press had a "crude Postscript version" for TyX

proofing, PUP had produced the last few volumes of the Jefferson
Papers in it because they had no alternative. I guess they could have
switched to Bell or a similar Scotch Roman, or, more likely a Caslon
Matthew told me that he started with... oh, wait for the lecture. It's
wonderful to hear how he used rare books to inform his re-working of
his starting material.
