“Caslon Open Face was issued by the Barnhart Brothers & Spindler foundry in 1915. It was originally called College Oldstyle and was initially a reproduction of Le Moreau de Jeune, a type from the France’s G. Peignot foundry; BB&S admitted to taking a liberty when they put it in the Caslon category” — Adobe/MyFonts
Lettergieterij Amsterdam sold the design as Gravure Iicht, Wimble had it as Kembla Openface. [Reichardt]
Bitstream’s digitization is spelled Caslon Openface. It is slightly heavier than Linotype’s and quite different in some details.
