Can someone please help me ID this font? The closest I have can get is Baskerville, but it is not quite right.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think you just have to find the right Baskerville. I think this extra bold weight may be the one from TypeShop (QBF), which often has heavier weights than most foundries. This looks like it was the Roman version slanted, rather than actual italics. This font name suggests it is based on Baskerville Old Face, or Fry's Baskerville.

Thank you for your help, Mike. Baskerville Old Face does the trick nicely.
