Tracy's Letters of credit, last page, brings up Francis Meynell's Nonesuch Plantin typeface; a short and superficial research shows it was a proprietary font for the Nonesuch press. The only book that seems to sport this exclusive little font seems to be The History of Herodotus of Halicarnassus from 1935 that fetches three-digit prices with book feti -- erm, collectors.
Does anyone happen to have this book or any other that might use Nonesuch Plantin or a reproduction of some sort? A photo of a specimen or a xerox of a page of that book? I am too curious in which way it differs from the good ole Monotype Plantin 110.
