One more Monographs on Greenland (Meddelelser om Grønland) question. This regards the font used for the content listing on the cover. (Published in Denmark, 1914.)
Thanks for the detailed image.
The font is Römische Antiqua, capitals designed by A. Anklam for Genzsch & Heyse, 1898.
Thanks your help! Except for the droop, Cheltenham isn't too far.
Inland Type Foundry (1907) also had MacFarland which is the same face and included lowercase, cut by permission of Genzsch & Heyse.
Thanks for the reference. It appears there are a few different versions of it – http://luc.devroye.org/inland/.
MacFarland is indeed based on Römische Antiqua, but there are some differences.
