Can anyone identify this face, used in an original edition of Kafka's "The Metamorphosis"? The scan is from Wikimedia, and is less hi-res than would be ideal, I realize. The caps looks like they have a lot of tell-tale features to them though...

This is ‹Tiemann Mediaeval›, a metal type from 1909 for the Klingspor foundry in Offenbach, Germany.

There is a digital version available for 10 point and 72 point from Gerhard Helzel.
