In the case of the title page shown here, the type probably wasn’t provided by either Caslon, Monotype, or Soldans.
Soldans was a London-based service that imported typefaces by foundries in continental Europe to the British Isles. In 1939, this included Bauer, Klingspor, Ludwig & Mayer, and Deberny et Peignot. Thirty years later, in 1968, Soldans was still in business, and represented Bauer, Ludwig & Mayer, Nebiolo, Amsterdam, and Berthold.
Walther Schnippering’s script type siblings originated at Schriftguss in Dresden, which was not represented by Soldans. Chances are the foundry delivered to the United Kingdom directly. There, Originell was known a Pentape, and Aktuell as Penflow.
These look to be the manicules designed by Will Bradley for ATF.
Very nice, thank you!
