I would say that I don’t actually know that this is Monotype’s Walbaum revival, although it certainly seems likely. According to this article their original handset Walbaum type came from Berthold but then they used Monotype’s when it became available.
One might perhaps be able to tell if Berthold’s Walbaum release wasn’t sold with lining figures, but I haven’t been able to get access to a Berthold specimen from the right period.
Thanks, I see. I’ve reverted the typeface credit to our generic Walbaum entry.
