Looks to be a relative of Baskerville. What's really interesting is that the roman g is a double story g and the italic is a single story g. Although, the general character of both the italic and roman fit with the character of baskerville with some minor variation.

Don't know how old this sample is and the catalogue I have is not of the best quality but this may be the metal typeface Fridericus Antiqua.

Link to the catalogue here.

Tough to say from that catalogue, but it sure looks that way, Tamas.

If you're a fan of that 'g' and that general level of contrast you might like the new Ingeborg.
