The Cormack McCarthy book looks like honest-to-goodness woodtype blocks, probably flipped horizontally after photography. It's a whole bunch of different faces.

The Michael Winter book looks like a font since the distress on all repeated letters is the same. It looks like there might be two different 'E's; one thick, one thin; so it might be OpenType enabled or even have uppercase letters in the lowercase set.

Poplar, HFJ Knockout & HFJ Knockout are all good woodblock type fonts, but the above is obviously (hand made?) of several different typefaces, so you'll just have to experiment.
There are a lot of these typefaces out there, here are some.

In addition to the above, you could recreate the McCarthy book with the myriad weights of Giza.
