PRAVDA slab serif from early 20thC


I am after a bit of type-sleuthing for this early (1917) example of what I guess is a wood type slab serif for PRAVDA. Kind of similar to this revival family http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/flat-it/dharma-slab/m-extra-bold/ but not quite, missing the rounded exit junctions before the slab-serifs...

Any clues?

thanks as ever for your time!

Agency FB : looking for good body text pairing

I am trying to create a retro Soviet/Communist look.

Agency FB seems versatile enough to cover everything except body text and small stuff.

I found ParaType's "Textbook", which is based on a Soviet-era typeface, but it's a bit too geometric and doesn't seem to match Agency.

Any suggestions?
