ANSWERED What is this typeface from a Latin-English dictionary?

Recommended Posts

This is my only sample supplied from a Latin–English dictionary published in 1948. Reminiscent of Cheltenham, but too many discrepancies rule that out.

Please help me identify this. Thank you in advance your your time and effort.

Looking for a digital version. Commercial fonts are fine.

Not even close to Cheltenham. Do you know where the book was published, and by whom?

Here we go: text is Farmers Old Style with Italic, and the bold is Clearface Bold. Machine composed on a Monotype. Farmers does not appear to be available commercially under that name, while Clearface is widely available. If you would like a hi-res scan of the Farmers face, let me know.

The specimen is 10 pt and the results were not as good as I would want. I will do photos on it; will be a little more time.
