Hi, wise people

I am finding hardly to get these (attached) decorative initials (in COMPLETE ALPHABET paper sample type specimens or in authentical letterpress printing type). I appreciate any light in this problem

best regards

Nick, know you if someone did digitized this font? Is, in that book, complete alphabet? I am searching in BriarPress to buy original types. Seems be electrotypes...

Plate 93 shows every letter except J. The caption does not indicate the source nor the form of the original letters. I am familiar with this particular alphabet because it is one I have considered digitizing, but I doubt that sales would justify the amount of effort required to redraw it completely by hand.
