Pre-1900 Serif Font Used by George Bell and Sons?

I'm looking for help identifying the font used in the introduction to this 1898 book published by George Bell and Sons. I tried WhatTheFont and didn't find anything close. I also tried Identifont and it suggested Fleischman BT Pro Bold, which is in the right ballpark but not quite right.

This should be a link directly to the first page of the introduction:;page=root;view=...

And the whole book is available from Google:

Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Even if you can't help, if anybody has any advice about how to approach a historical question like this one, that would also be helpful as well.
