A condensed Latine or Etienne ft. a two-storey ‘g’ with diagonal flag. Shown in Seemann (1926) as Renaissance schmal halbfett (ca. 1880, AG für Schriftgießerei u. M., Stempel) and Renaissance schmal (before 1900, Genzsch & Heyse, Haas, John, Klingspor, Bauer). It is not clear where this design originated. The sample combines glyphs from various sizes, hence with slight differences in weight and proportion.
Woellmer’s Renaissance schmal is similar, but distinguished by an ‘r’ with ball terminal and a bent flag in ‘g’.
- circa 1880
