1920's hardbound book cover

I've looked everywhere for this, online, old type specimen books and I simply can't recognize it.

A letterpress printer friend of mine suggested it could be a customisation on Windsor or Hallamshire Old Style, but I think it maybe quite a big customisation for a book binder.

The book was published in London, around 1924.

Any help on this is much appreciated,

I have searched my reference books and have not been able to locate this. It is probably something that was not used in the U.S., or I think it would have showed up in at least one of my books. It is not in the Jaspert "Encyclopaedia of Type Faces" or "Rookledge TypeFinder" either.

Can I ask why you didn't post this in the part of the Type ID Forum for unsolved fonts?

Where I found your question is an area where I would not have expected to find open questions, as this category is supposed to be Solved ID's only. People rarely would be looking into the Solved ID section.
