Thanks for this fine addition, John!
and have collected most of the letters (which can vary a bit from vendor to vendor)
Now I’m curious: Where have you spotted Ringling Brothers, other than in catalogs by Photo-Lettering? My understanding is that it originated at the typesetting studio in New York, as a rounder and bolder rendition of an alphabet shown by Chicago-based lettering artist J.M. Bergling in his Art Alphabets & Lettering from 1914. Photo-Lettering also had a direct adaptation of Bergling’s alphabet, under the name Xenotype 3487, aka Staudel Xenotype K. I have posted in-use examples for both, see Ringling Brothers in use for a series of paperbacks by Fritz Leiber, and Staudel Xenotype K for Buddah Records.
