I found this typeface in book: “The Encyclopedia of Calligraphy & Illumination” In title of page is ornamental italic, but who know what its came from? There is no specific information about typefaces. It is a old? Can I use it for commerce? I don't no. (and sorry for my english)

I doubt that they used a typeface to teach the art of calligraphy. That is probably hand lettered.

If you like this type of calligraphy, there ARE several beautiful typefaces that are closely modelled on it. For example:
Poetica (its hundreds of variant letterforms, used creatively, allow for something approaching hand-lettering):

To use these particular letters, you would need to digitize them and convert them into a font format, which requires time, software and technical expertise. There are individuals and companies who specialize in that work ... But it would also involve questions of copyright permission from the original author/calligrapher.
I believe that it would be easier and more efficient to purchase a font which is sufficiently similar to the lettering sample you have posted.

Zapfino is probably the least like the sample of those mentioned. Structurally this http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/letterperfect/goteborg/ is closer, but without the loops. Maestro is good as well. Zapfino is way more slanted and has a tighter and more refined look.

I want use it in only logo. So I would convert it into vector format. But there is that copyright question. Probably I will use something else than. Thank you I know more now.
