    Title page for the official guide to the Municipal Historical Museum in Frankfurt/Main, edited by Dr. Fritz Quilling. The second, revised edition was published in 1902.

    The typography features a version of Celtic in two all-caps widths. In Germany, one such version was sold by the Klinkhardt foundry as Breite Mediaeval-Egyptienne-Versalien (equivalent to Farmer’s Light Face Celtic No. 2, see “Führer”), with a Condensed named Schmale Mediaeval-Egyptienne-Versalien (see “Städtische Historische Museum”). The other typefaces are unidentified.
