Fonts from old bookbinder's seal

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the fonts (or suggest something close) for the words "C. HERING." and "London." in this old bookbinder's seal.

I've gotten the close fonts for "Bound by" and "N. 70 St Martin Street" but haven't been able to figure out the ones mentioned in the above paragraph.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Perhaps Celestia Antiqua could work for London, and Caslon Openface for C HERING.

Thanks for your suggestions! I really appreciate them. Caslon Openface is close but not bold enough. As for Celestia Antiqua, I'm not looking for antiqued effect font for London. I was hoping that it is some old classic font that is still available. If you have any other ideas, feel free to keep 'em coming.
Thanks again!

Bobby
