Wondering which serif fonts were used for the title of these books? *Design Student doing font research*

I am doing a project for my class called Communication Design 154b at the desma department at UCLA. I am comparing the photographers, Robert Capa, and Henri Cartier Bresson. I was looking to use two fonts in a book that will include my analysis and comparison of them. Both of the photos I am comparing were taken in the 1930's. The font research is part of the project. I'd be glad to here anyones advice and would be thankful.

I think this the best one:
Robert Capa: The Definitive Collection-
http://www.amazon.com/Robert-Capa-Definitive-Richard-Whelan/dp/071484449...
--
Henri Cartier-Bresson: Photographer (Hardcover)-
http://www.amazon.com/Henri-Cartier-Bresson-Aperture-Masters-Photography...
--
An Inner Silence: The Portraits of Henri Cartier-Bresson (Hardcover)
http://www.amazon.com/Inner-Silence-Portraits-Henri-Cartier-Bresson/dp/0...

much appreciated.

Robert Capa:
Not an exact match, but URW Typewriter is a very similar rounded slab serif:
