What is the Monotype Grotesque® font?

Typefaces without serifs were known in nineteenth-century England as Grotesque (or Grotesk in German) because they seemed so unusual to most readers. Monotype Grotesque is a straightforward 1926 design that is among the earliest sans serifs cut for hot-metal machine typesetting.
Its simple, clean lines make it amenable for text use, and the condensed and extended versions are useful for shorter text and display use.
