Our sources were mainly official and legal documents printed in the late royal period, and in the beginning of the French revolution.
There was not any bold style. The “1790 Royal Printing Caps” files contained small caps, plus titling caps for headline as “1790 Royal Printing” capitals are intended to be used preferably for texts.
