Squared typeface from 1888 catalog

Has anyone seen this typeface before? It is scanned out of a history book about Francis Bannerman. It is a sample page from the Bannerman 1888 catalog.

Nick hasn't got to this one yet, obviously...it looks like his brand-new Linndale Square is based on this, or at least something very similar. According to the following page on MyFonts, it's a digitization of Geometric, an 1885 face from the Cleveland Type Foundry.

Looks very much like CG Geometric Light

I had a typeface with GarageFont long time ago (Pomodoro) looking similar.
Have planned for an expanded re-release with Psy/Ops. Can't say when.

Cheers
