Typeface used in 1930 Faber and Faber book of poetry?

Sean Pryor's picture

Hello,

Would anyone by any chance be able to identify the typeface used in the attached sample, taken from Joseph Macleod, "The Ecliptic" (Faber and Faber, 1930)? I have a hunch it might be a brand of Baskerville? Apologies that the resolution is not fantastic - I'm working from a pdf.

Many thanks for your time,
Sean

The text body looks indeed very close to URW Baskerville Extra Narrow Medium

The title looks like a different font, but it could be approximated by Caslon Book with the exception of |A| & |T|
