Gustavian typefaces

Does anyone know any typefaces that would have been used in correlation with the Gustavian design style from 18th century Sweden? I am a graphic design student working on a design project and am having trouble tracking anything down. More broadly, anything with Neo-Classical influence that was prevalent in 18th century Scandinavia would also be relevant. I would appreciate any insights!

This is a good resource for looking at swedish texts from the time: http://litteraturbanken.se/

Basically, a lot of stuff from the previous two centuries, often weakly typeset. Caslons, blackletters, you name it.
