Flights Of Fantasy – The Ventures

The Schelter & Giesecke ad uses both forms of s for the lines in Edelgotiſch*, but does without the long s for the smaller text in Romanisch. This is in line with the style-specific preferences at the time, see my comment to the post about the Julius Hager ads.
*) The typesetter got one of the s’s wrong. Can you spot it?
How about that ‘ch’ ligature — is this a special addition for this specific typeface, or was it a common feature at the time of that advertisement? I have never seen it in recent typefaces (apart from elegant ‘ch’ discretionary ligatures for serif type)
