Originated at Flinsch in two styles, Römisch and Römisch breit halbfett (bold extended). [Reichardt] The latter is reproduced in Petzendorfers Schriftenatlas (1903–1905). It was renamed to London Antiqua in 1912. [VdS]
Film versions of the breit halbfett are shown in PLINC’s One Line (1971) as Niagara, in Typeshop’s Selection and in Lettergraphics’s 1976 catalog simply as Breit, and in Castcraft’s Encyclopedia (1978) as Butler.
Durendal (Scriptorium, 1993) is a poor digitization.
