Anyone knows something similar to this? Has it been digitized? Or the name of this font? The scan is taken from Tashen's "Type. A Visual History of Typefaces & Graphic Styles" and the font was created for Società Augusta in Torino. Thank you

Nebiolo absorbed several other foundries after 1889 and for some time the company was called Società Augusta, but it reverted to Nebiolo&Co in 1917. See Luc Devroye's Nebiolo page http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-36780.html. So this font could have been in a Nebilo catalog. The Klingspor musueum has listed many, & perhaps all, of the types ever made by Nebiolo http://www.klingspor-museum.de/KlingsporKuenstler/Schriftgiessereien/Neb... but does not show any images. So the name could perhaps be on this list.
Probably not digitized.

One more to throw into the hat: Scriptorium's Beaumains (which I know as Livonia).
