Tanagra by Natale Varetti

Hi! Does anyone know this font? It's called Tanagra, designed by Natale Varetti for a typographical contest in 1910 and later published by Nebbiolo in 1924. It's an interesting font, but I can not find pictures or catalogs: I found only this picture of the italics on the internet. None of you happen to have some more pictures?

It bears a more than passing resemblance to Nuptial Script.

Mhmm, yes, like Garamond resembles Times New Roman...
Like I said, this is the Italic, not the Roman.
