spine

Can you guys help me ID this one?

I assume it's from this 1970 edition:

I'm also doing a research on the most common Encyclopedia Britannica spine types.

Best,

Spine

A spine is the integral part of the common s structure in Latin types and fonts. Spines range in form from a simple diagonal line to s-shaped (including part of the upper and lower bowls), with and without stressing. The spine of some letter types such as constructivist and geometric consists of two right-angled joints joined by a horizontal crossbar. The term is borrowed from anatomical nomenclature.
