1805 Jaeck Map is a historical font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by GLC Foundry.

This font is mainly inspired from the engraved characters of a German Map depicting Germany’s roads and parts of surrounding lands, edited in Berlin probably in the end of 1700’s. The engraver was Carl J├Ąck or Jaek (1763-1808). The Map was baught by the French napoleonic general Louis Pierre Delosme (1768-1828)probably during the Napolenic campaign against Germany, circa 1805 or at least 1806, his sole staying in Germany.

The font (with two styles, Normal and Italic)is containing standard ligatures and a few alternative characters. It is a “small eye” or “Small x-eight” font, as the Maps’ characters are most often very small (some Italic lower cases of the map are 1mm hight, upper cases 2mm)

The standard English characters set is completed with accented or specific characters for Western(Including Celtic)and Central European, Baltic, Eastern Europe and Turkish languages.
