Two bold compressed styles shown as Grotesk No. 1 Lower Case and Grotesk No. 2 Lower Case in Castcraft’s Encyclopedia (1978). No uppercase. No. 2 appears to be intended for larger sizes, with even narrower apertures and counters. Alternates for ‘acegjstxy&’. The ‘g’ has the capital form. There are 6 forms for ‘t’, with one-sided and two-sided bars and 3 different heights for the tail. Origin unknown. Similar to Bailey Bold Condensed.
