Searching for a 1800s decorative typeface (font file or eps)

Hi everyone -
I've spent several hours online searching for a font that might mimic the appearance of the hand drawn typeface used for the cover of an old Farmer's Almanac. Anybody know of a close fit? I like the the shading and roundness of the letterforms, but most examples I've found online take the decorative aspect too far for my liking (i.e. zebrawood).

For a rough, hand-lettered looking font, check this out: Cripto Font from Intellecta Design. It has shading and dropshadow plus a bit more but still simple looking.

Good luck!
