TrueType and PostScript font
Essays 1743 is based on the typeface used in a 1743 English translation of Montaigne's Essays (if you've read any of Neal Stephenson's last three books, you've seen this type of font). It contains 817 characters: all of ASCII, Latin-1, and Latin Extended A; some of Latin Extended B (basically, the ones that are more or less based on Roman letters); and a variety of other characters, such as oddball punctuation, numerals, etc. TrueType and PostScript forms are available.
