I am currently looking in various books on the excellent site

In the following book,
Bench Work In Wood
A Course of Study and Practice
by W.F.M. Goss, 1890

All the exercises about dovetail assembly including the “Lap or Drawer dovetail” used by Smitty for its large drawers herebove and the blind dovetail are done with half-tails on the edge.
see page 111 to 117 (119 to 125 in the PDF)
There is not any one exercise with half-pins at the edges.
