Italic-only in 3 sizes (10, 12, 18pt) with swelled strokes and swash caps. Origin uncertain, but first known appearance is in Conner & Sons’ 1873 catalog and an 1878 patent by James M. Conner appears to describe the design. Sold by AG für Schriftgießerei as Zirkularschrift.
No known digitization, but the lowercase is quite similar to Clifton Italic (used for sample).
