Here’s a glyph set of Bookman Bold Italic Swash AKA “Sixties Bookman” as shown in a TypeShop catalog from 1973:
Very Nice, Florian! You can really see where Sixties Bookman was one of the main inspirations behind Bookmania. I was actually surprised that ATF’s Bookman had swashes, at all.
The book Type and Typography by Ben Rosen has some good specimens of the 50s and 60s Golden Oldies like Standard, Venus, and Fortune. All from either Ludlow, ATF, Bauer or Amsterdam Continental. I’ll be posting more on Flickr.
