historically popular font styles per region?

Does anyone know of a resource that could be used to determine the popular fonts in a particular region, for example a particular country, for particular dates?

If not how would you go about discovering this information?

I am thinking particularly of historically popular fonts in Denmark.
I do not need a 100% accurate result...a result that tells me that a particular font was likely high in popularity at a given date would be adequate.

Dates might be as far back as the 1750s to today.

It would be easier if you could break the usage into sectors.
For example: typefaces used in books, or newspapers, or advertising. Or, in more recent times, in shop signs.

You're right, I did not specify. I meant in books, and if it were possible to get even more specific Law Books.
