ID: Typographia Polyglotta

joerg's picture

Here's a font that the Typographia Polyglotta Vaticana used between ~1905 and ~1930.
I've already asked the people in Rome about this font, but they have no idea what it is.
Does anyone here recognize it?

Thanks for Your help

The two closest things I have been able to find are Elzevir and French Old Style, both from Monotype, both right for the age of the sample. Q is not right in FOS (but it is in Elzevir), and J is not right in Elzevir. This could be an Italian cut related to these two typefaces?
