Art nouveau, monolinear sans-serif, named "Jerwan", looking for other names

This is from a 1990 German book of various display faces. Some of them are under a different name in the book than what I'm familiar with, so I thought that this one might be known as something else as well because I can't find information online about a typeface called Jerwan.

It's the orginal Berthold Bauer Halbfette Secession on which the HiH's version is based:

Sorry, not finding any references to Jerwan either.

Reminds me of Secession and ITC Stoclet Bold—the latter being closer to your sample if you use its alternate A.
