In 1887, this style of newspaper or book face may only have been referred to by a general style name like Modern or Scotch, or soley by a number.

Scotch Modern is Nick Shinn's excellent digital take on the style. Century Expanded, which evolved from those more generic 19th century models, would be a closer match for the numerals.
