“The French interest in the revival of suitably edited Oldstyle romans as an alternative to a world of Modern typefaces started in 1846 when Louis Perrin cut the Lyons capitals. About 1860, […] Theophile Beaudoire turned the idea of the Lyons capitals into a complete Oldstyle typeface, with similar overwhelming success; it was generally known as Elzevir in France and Roemisch, Romanisch, Romaans or Romana in Germany, Holland and Switzerland.” [MyFonts]
There are multiple interpretations by various foundries. The one shown here — likely from Haas, Trennert, and Ludwig & Mayer — is an early 1900s German interpretation of Gustav Schroeder’s De Vinne (Central/ATF, 1892). [Seemann]
Schelter & Giesecke had an outline version named Tasso. Together with Halbfette Romanisch, it formed the bichromatic set Tizian.
