19th Century American Type

fi's picture

I'm looking to ID the types used in "The Amazon an Madeira Rivers" (via the Library of Congress.) Both the title page and body text please. Images are attached as well.

I was looking at Nick Shinn's Scotch Modern and it looks very close to the body.

Thanks for all your help fellow typophiles.

Scotch Modern it can't be because it is a new design, but it certainly was inspired by this kind of type. Try Devinne.

You might try Romana, too.
