1564 Italian - DANTE sample - help!

Hello

I am looking for a font for a project inspired by the 'Divine Comedy' / Dante's 'Inferno' - found this lovely sample from an old edition. Can anyone point me in the direction of a font with similarly spiky serifs?

thanks in advance for your time and assistance!

Matt

What about The Fell Types by Igino Marini?

Thanks for the 'Fell Types' pointer, but none of them (as far as I can see) have the same quirks as this sample — particularly noticeable are the parallel angled serifs on the 'T'...

There's always Charlemagne, of course, for spiky serifs.

Nice suggestion, Thomas.
