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'
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."
