blackfriars typefoundry

Looking for any items from the Blackfriars Typefoundry, London.
I am looking for founts of type, boarders, cases, spacing, rules, catalogues, setting sticks, lead cutters, etc. anything with the BTF mark on it.
Also any information on the Wicks Rotary Typecasting Company, I would be interested in any items from this Company, in any way or form.
Wicks was taken over by the BTF, These companies cast the founts for the Times every day for many years (quicker that dissing the type) the building they were housed in still exists in Blackfriars Road, London, SE1, today.
If you would like more information on these companies, please drop me a line.
