Heavenly Lover is an album by American singer Teresa Brewer (1931–2007), first released in 1959 on Coral Records. Brewer “was one of the most prolific and popular female singers of the 1950s, recording nearly 600 songs.”
The decorated serif caps of condensed propotions are from a typeface of unknown origin that goes under the name Louis XIV. A phototype adaptation is shown in Photo-Lettering’s One Line catalog (1971) and previously as Xenotype 3805 in their Alphabet Thesaurus Vol. 2 (1965). A foundry type version is shown in three sizes in a 1966 specimen by Tri-Arts Press.
The wide caps for “Orchestra and chorus directed by Dick Jacobs” are from Venus breit halbfett.

Louis XIV goes back to an ornamented Latin designed in 1884 by Henry Brehmer. “His patent, issued in in January 1885, was assigned to the Bruce TF [USPTO D15749]. Bruce cataloged it as Ornamented No. 1081; apparently, the tradename Louis IV was assigned by F.N. Phillips.” — Type Heritage Project
