First Six Books of Homer's Iliad by James R. Boise. Published by S.C. Griggs & company in 1872
For me the second theta you describe is the 'normal' one, it's just two different ways to write one, funny that they would use two different fonts in the same piece though .
The Theta you drew (Beats me how you did it) is like the one I meant except that 'mine is leaning left (The other letters are leaning right)
I write mine a lot like that but instead I start mine half way up, move down and then across and up etc. That way I end up with a Theta that is closed. (I hope that made sense.)

The theta you describe is the handwritten cursive style of type. It is easier and faster to write and, thus, prefered by most Greeks.
Strange that they switch back and forth randomly, or so it seems, isn't it?
