Wood type lot, numerous complete and near-complete sets

We have several sets of wood type for sale. Ideally we would sell them all together, however we could consider selling individual sets if the lot does not find a buyer. Hoping these go somewhere to be used rather than broken up to sell as trinkets. All are in typical condition for their age. Can be picked up or shipped. Set descriptions below, to match respective photos. $2000 or best offer. Full resolution photos are available.
