Can anyone tell me this Uncle Vanya font?
Only similars unfortunately: IFC Hardball and Batak Condensed
The general typestyle is known as Mansard (the serifs look like mansard roof-lines). The "E" is likely to have been introduced.
These are not exact matches, but are similar and typify the form:
http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/woodentypefonts/mansard/Jordan Davies' Mansard Extra Bold (he has nothing thinner).
Red Dog Saloon family(FontMesa)
57 Rodeo (Baseline Fonts)
Helvin Black (Type Revivals)
Mansard-Normal (NovelFonts/Photolettering). No internal attribution.
By the way, this image, without the 'extended' overprint, was pretty easy to find.
