Academic quotation from sixteenth-century Holy Roman Empire decree

I'm in the process of editing and reformatting some old undergraduate papers of mine (for possible use as "academic writing samples" for some of my upcoming grad school applications).

This particular one is a history paper on the Habsburg dynasty. I've chosen to set it in 11pt Baskerville, which works fairly well. However, there are a couple of places where I use indented quotations from a primary source (a publication of laws by Charles V). I'd like to use a slightly different font for these, but I'm having trouble finding something appropriate.

Who designed Monotype Ehrhardt?

Does anyone know who designed Monotype Ehrhardt? The Monotype site simply credits "Monotype Design Studio". Sebastian Carter's _Twentieth Century Type Designers_ says that Stanley Morison directed the Monotype Drawing Office to tweak up a proprietary version of Janson, but Ehrhardt has certain idiosyncratic details--most notably the curved crossbar of the A--which seem out of character for Morison. It does seem like a particular designer with a particular personality worked on this one. Anyone know who?

Many thanks,
