Looks hand-drawn to me as all repeating letters look different.
Perhaps the most distinctive feature of this lettering is the arrowhead/beaked serif terminals at the top and bottom of C and S.
Some fonts with this feature:
Horley Old Style by Frank Hinman Pierpont 1925 for Monotype:
Kennerley by Frederic W. Goudy for publisher Mitchell Kennerley in 1911:
ITC Caslon 224:
Big Caslon by Mathew Carter:
The placement of the umlaut over the O was a not unusual feature of German lettering and fonts of the era.
Far from perfect but I like Goldenbook by Mark Simonson, mainly because of the /R.
I forgot to mention that the R is found in Goudy's Kennerley. See previous post for LT & BT versions. Another version is Red Rooster's TCKingsley http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/redrooster/tc-kingsley-rr/
