Typeface used in 1930 Faber and Faber book of poetry?


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,


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 http://Caslon Book with the exception of |A| & |T|

Many thanks, that's very helpful. Cheers, Sean
