No luck on the script yet, but a head-on view of the full cover leads me to believe that it was hand lettered (in 1936, the date of publication, not uncommon in book design). Haven't found anything terribly close in a digital typeface.

Based on other images I found of the book, the spine and title page are set in Weiss:
