I'm trying to ID the text font used in this publication:
http://www.etc-publications.com/swiss/swiss_005.htm
The attachment shows a detail of the text.

Many thanks!

Oops, looks like I missed this one -- I think this might be a Novarese design. Hold on...

I thought Noverese too - but it's off a bit, look at the cap A.

I thought Concorde or Concorde Nova.

The design is incredibly familiar and has characteristics of both Aldo Novarese and Hermann Zapf's earlier text designs, perhaps even metal, but definitely pre-digital.

Here's a better isolation of letters, from a different etc. publication.

Yves, Patty, Tim, Norbert, thanks very much for the ideas, and the suggestion about Novarese.
Cheshiredave, thanks very much for the better image.

I'm still hoping to figure this one out...

The font is called Esperanto, but misses the characters from Esperanto, such as ĉ, ĝ, ĥ, ĵ, ŝ and ŭ. Odd.....
