Monkish Type Identified

My biggest thrill is postively identifying a type, especially when it is an older ornate type that may have some historical significance. We have that and we have several unknown serif styles that are close to one thing or another, but not anything in the massive type books we have. This one is an early one that’s even more exciting because it’s in good shape although quantity-wise there’s enough for some titles, but not much more. By it’s nature, though you wouldn’t be doing paragraphs of it anyway. We have it in 24 and 36 point without any missing letters as far as I can tell. I’m still looking for the “and” pieces though. I’m hoping they were placed somewhere with borders or graphics.
