Vintage Type - Where can I find these?

Quierta's picture

I have a small graphic with an assortment of vintage typefaces right here:

Since they are so old I don't know if they are still in commercial print, but if anyone can tell me what they are (or were?) AND if there are any modern counterparts or look-alikes, that would be very helpful to me!

Oh, crap. I posted this in the wrong place.

The one identified by Skylar as Deneane looks like a version of Columbus (http://www.thomasphinney.com/2011/07/reviving-columbus-and-font-quality/). Soon to be revived as Cristoforo (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tphinney/cristoforo-victorian-cthulh...).

Hah, I realized that after I posted it; the forum path confused me. Sorry!

But thanks to you and to everyone who typed these typefaces for me; it helps a ton!
