Author likes font in scholarly books from 1940's but they don't specify the font: help!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm an academic choosing a font for my next book. I don't know much about fonts, but I like the

human and approachable fonts in scholarly books from the 1940's and 1950's (or so). However, I haven't seen

such a book that specifies which font it is using. Here's an example from Linforth's classic

'The Arts of Orpheus' (UCal Press, 1941 ). Can you tell me the font? Is it old or well-known? How could I use it? 

(I tried inputting this into the website WhatTheFont, but they seem to recommend only newly created fonts.)
