Calligraphy Pens & Inks

Explorer's Calligraphy Set

"In the 19th century, a good education included drawing and penmanship lessons, pastimes that seem luxurious in our electronic age. Historians may wrestle with Lewis and Clark's famously bad spelling, but without these explorers' exhaustive handwritten journals and sketchbooks, our knowledge of the American frontier would be incomplete. A calligraphy set much like this may have accompanied them on their westward journey. Three styli, six nibs, and two bottles of ink are packed in an antiqued wooden case with distinctive brass hardware."
