19th century/early 20th century Serif type.

(x) Need a 19th century/early 20th century Serif type. - various suggestions {Marc O, Robert T}


I am looking for a vintage looking typeface, similar to the one above. I am not worried about it being distressed, but want it to have an Victorian/early 20th century feel. Certainly serifed, and with similar line thicknesses (as seen on the A).

It doesn't have to be shadowed either, as can add that if required...

So far the closest I have found is: ITC Quorum BT, but am looking for more suitable options.

I maybe that I end up hand drawing it, but would like a base font to alter.

Any help, suggestions, or places to look(such as specific library's/books) would be great.

Thanks in advance.
