I think there is a line feed in the style=Roman,Roman before the comma

For sure fc-list and fc-cat cannot handle this file because of incorrect metadata in the font file. This needs to be fixed.

Also running ttx on the font file results in data with errors. Running:
  ttx -d /tmp -t name -t OS/2 -t GSUB -t maxp Century-Catalogue.ttf
results in a file with on line 114 the following:
        <FeatureTag value="^@^A^@^@"/>
which is also disruptive for analysing font metadata.
