It's Pistilli Roman, which hasn't yet been digitized. Phil Martin's Didoni is a close copy, but the digital version's hairlines are not nearly as thin.

Phil's version was not a straight knock-off. He added a bunch of swash and alternate characters. Ironically, Phil's contributions are missing from the URW digitization, so what you get is essentially just a knock-off of Pistilli Roman.

Thanks. Shame about the hairlines... really like Pistillis contrast
