The Abecedarian Book by Charles W. Ferguson

Thank you very much, Felix! I have added a few more typeface IDs. I believe the word “BOOK” on the jacket is a light version of Columbus. I haven’t been able to find the typeface used for “ABC” on the cover, as well as the one for the big single letters in the interior. If it’s a typeface (as opposed to custom drawn letterforms), that is.
Several of the featured faces including Safari, Campanile, Grant No. 2 were included in the Morgan Press Collection. That’s not too surprising: John Alcorn designed the catalogs for this series of revivals of wood and foundry typefaces.
