First cast by the H. Hoffmeister foundry in 1909 [Klingspor-Museum] or 1913 [Reichardt] in a mager (light) style. Fett (1914), schmalfett (1915) and schmalfett verziert styles followed. [Reichardt] Later cast by Stempel after the foundry’s acquisition in 1918. Comes with initials for several styles. Alternates with elongated descenders (mager: f g h j p ſ z; schmalfett: f ff j p z ſ ſſ) and terminal swashes (mager: e m n r t). Baltimore’s Elegante cut by George Battee is based on the mager.
