Another emaciated 19th century font -- this one from a book published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington in 1886 -- that is somewhat similar to the Caslon Old Style variant discussed in Identifont has selected some digital adaptations which you might consider, starting with Monotype Old Style or Bruce Old Style or Williams Caslon Text
These are too heavy, but the other digital similar fonts are even heavier.
Trying to match the lowercase _g_ with it's small lower bowl might help with the search.
