I have attached two typefaces from Bruce which apparently have a clashing trade names with two already digitize existing typeface: “Victoria” and “Tendril”

Here are the two specimens from Bruce catalogs.

The bottom typeface is also known as Eclessiastic by some type foundries such as MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan. It also appears in some German type specimen books as well or in the periodical entitled Archiv fur Buchdrucherkunst. It has been digitized by Aridi.

Yours truly,
Robert

This typeface is called Crystal and was cast by Farmer, Little & Co., a specimen is shown in The Typographical Journey Through the Inland Printer, and was cast around 1890 or earlier.

Yours truly,
Robert
