Three typefaces, one 1950s book cover.

Hello, could anyone please tell me what the three typefaces (or one of them) on the attached book cover are? Is a Yves Klein catalogue from the 1950s. Many thanks in advance.

I have added a new image which has more of the Sans Serif, there seems to be two different cuts of A and E being used.

No visible sample.

Sorry, I have reattached it.

YVES is Cheltenham, although a quick search didn't yield a digital version that matches it exactly.

PEINTURES is similar to Walbaum, but I don't see a digital version with the severe "underbite" of the E or the curly foot of the leg of the R.

Preface has something of Futura.

YVES is very close to Cheltenham indeed,
but I think Sorbonne BQ Bold (Berthold) is a better match

PEINTURES is very close to Tiemann

PREFACE DE PASCAL CALUSE is similar to Estrangelo Edessa
an MS-Windows Font designed to support the Syriac script,
the main differences being the strange /E of PREFACE and the /S

Interesting, I wasn't aware of Sorbonne, which is a better match. It's clearly derived from Cheltenham, though.

For the low-waisted E, you could have a look at Neutraface.
