I have been trying to find this font, but couldn't find it.
To me it looks like a "Times" variant, but then I noticed the serifs of the capital italicized letters 'I' and 'A' (see detail)
Closest I came to it was 'Times BQ' or in my library it is also listed under "Times New Roman* MONOTYPE Regular" ...
any help appreciated, the scan is from jd salinger's nine stories (1991 edition)
(already tried identifont, whatthefont)
