Looking for a Specimen of "Ovid" by Heinz Keune, published 1903 by Schelter & Giesecke

What it says on the tin - I have a partial specimen from the 1912 Hauptprobe, but I'm missing some critical letters and most of the numbers. Would anybody have another specimen or use example?

    Perhaps you can show the specimen you have? Might help find more samples.
  • Ah yes, that would indeed be helpful! It's the one on the right. (I've already done the left one ;)

    Not much, but for starters, here are two samples from Klimschs Jahrbücher 1906 and 1907. I don’t have scans of higher resolution.

    The inevitable “Hamburg” from Seemanns Handbuch der Schriftarten:

    This label has three lines of Wettin, which is Ovid’s wider precursor, also by Keune.

  • Great, thank you, Florian!
