Why does Font Book not display "Foundry"

    Several websites I have visited and books I own show a screenshot of Font
    Book in which seven items of information (Font & Size, Font type, Foundry,
    Copyright, Family, Display name, and Postscript name) can be displayed at the
    bottom of the preview panel. The version of Font Book installed on my system
    is 102 (v36.1) and two of those pieces of information (Foundry, and
    Copyright) are not included. I haven't found anything anywhere, either by
    reading, or by exploring, that enables these additional items.

    The question then is, am I missing something, or have these items been elided
    from Font Book?

    Many thanks for responding and, by golly, you hit the ol' nail on the head!

    As an alternative I found that a single click on the font name followed by a
    hovering over the font name at the bottom right, provided you have the
    several lines of font information displayed, will also reveal the foundry and
    copyright information.
