Font similar to Palatino

cody2012's picture

The scan is attached. This is from a book published in 1993, so the typeface may or may not be digitized. I am looking either for either a digital version of this typeface, or an existing typeface which closely approximates this.

WhatTheFont suggested Scriptorium Marquis, Marathon Serial, and Garamond. However, the line weights in this scan are of a more-or-less similar stroke width, ruling out the first two, and the capital T of Garamond has bidirectional serifs, while this has vertical serifs on the capital T, ruling out Garamond.

I am thinking of using Palatino to approximate this typeface; however, Palatino has more contrast between thick and thin strokes than what is in the attached image. Any suggestions?

You can try also Aldus (Roman)
Another candidate (not so close but of less contrast) could be Stempel Schneidler (Medium)

Looks like URW Palladio to me.
