Raymond Duncan's Unique Typography

Around 1965 while wandering in Paris around the Left Bank I came across a shopfront with a sign declaring in English or French (I forgot) The Four Duncans Museum. They were four sibling the most famous being Isadora Duncan the dancer. I just found out about Raymond Duncan 1874-1966, who immersed himself in ancient Greek culture, and the interest here is that he created his own typeface to print his own books.
Orson Welles interviewed him here:

Anything about this eccentric polymath's typeface, quality examples of printed pages and critical discussion would be interesting.
