“Linotype Baskerville, said to be based on original punches which are still in existence, is much like the ATF face [see Baskerville Old Face], but differs in details of capitals C, Q, W, and lowercase w, y, and &. It was cut in 1926 under the direction of George W. Jones, British typographer. The italic was recut in 1936 under Linotype's program of typographic refinements.” [McGrew]
