It's the original Cooper Oldstyle. URW's and Bitstream's versions have been "homogenized" a bit, and lack the tasty little idiosyncrasies of the original; Wordshape's comes close to true, but not entirely...

Hah, I was about to think it was some sort of Goudy face. Were the two contemporaries?

Goudy was an early mentor/teacher to Cooper.
