Another emaciated 19th century font -- this one from a book published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington in 1886 https://archive.org/details/cu31924087935973 -- that is somewhat similar to the Caslon Old Style variant discussed in http://typophile.com/node/118989 Identifont has selected some digital adaptations which you might consider, starting with Monotype Old Style http://www.identifont.com/find?font=Monotype+Old+Style&q=Go or Bruce Old Style http://www.identifont.com/find?font=Bruce+Old+Style&q=Go or Williams Caslon Text http://www.identifont.com/show?27C9
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.
