or use M-x customize-face RET default RET

Or, if running emacs 21, you can use set-face-attribute for the
default face. If the 3rd argument to this function is nil, it will
apply to all frames e.g.

(set-face_attribute 'default nil :family "b&h-lucidatypewriter")

or, on the command line use emacs -fn "-b&h-lucidatypewriter-......

Personally, I like to use X resources for setting the font as using
that font is only relevant when your running under X, but your .emacs
runs when you running under tty, X, within xterm, etc etc.

The X setting is

emacs.font: -b&h-..........

in your .Xresources file.
