    Playbill for “the best loved overtures” of Carl Maria von Weber, released by NYC-based budget record company Plymouth (P12–33) probably sometime in the 1950s. “Linz Symphony Orchestra” is in Karnak Black, the opera titles in Tempo Bold. Both typefaces were designed by Robert Hunter Middleton for Ludlow. Their Medium Condensed Gothic appears for “recorded in Europe“.
