Serif with distinctive W.

Hello, I wonder if anyone can ID this serif, the closest match I got before was Bembo Book but the distinctive W is missing. Many thanks in advance.

Iowan Old Style has a higher x-height than the sample, and a different "r".

Woodwood, what year is this sample from?

I found this on the interent, I think is a page from the Whole Earth Catalogue so I am guessing it must have been in the 70s.

woodwood, sorry, I do not know this. It may pre-date digital typefaces. Perhaps someone else can answer your question.

Bembo Book MT Std from Monotype. I love Iowan Oldstyle anfd this sample is not it - Bembo looks good for it.
