Pacific Victoria Italic (Pacific States)
I have yet to see a specimen for Pacific Victoria Italic and do not know for certain whether it was a lining face as Victoria Italic (Central) was. The simultaneously introduced Regal Italic (ATF), which also included a lowercase, may or may not have been lining. The later Lining Regal Italic No. 2 (ATF) included a lowercase and was lining. A lowercase for a lining face is unusual.
See Era (BB&S). Frequently used in (silent) film cards.

Perpetua (Dumas, Monotype UK)
Ribadeau Dumas [individual] (also Ribadeau Dumas [type foundry]) struck matrices for Perpetua from punches cut by Charles Malin from designs by Eric Gill in 1926, and cast from them. These punches later went to The Monotype Corp. Ltd. (UK). (C. Volmer Nordlunde's Letters from a Danish Typographer [Typophiles Chap Books, No. 46] (NY: The Typophiles, 1967), p. 75.)
