Letterpressed type on book from 1788

I'm looking to identify this typeface on a book letterpressed in 1788. If anyone could help, that would be great!

It clearly isn't the typeface in question given it was designed in 1996, but give Filosofia a try. Might be a bit too clean/digital, I guess.

Wouldn't you say they used more than one font? If I take a close look at the capital R in the bottom left picture, it differs from the one in the picture next to it. I'd say any Jensonesk Caslonian Bembo comes close ;-) but I don't see a captital W in your snapshots. Is there any change you could upload or link one?
