Binny & Ronaldson

This is from a 2008 political science book published in Germany. It is pretty decently designed, compared to most other publications in its academic field, the typographic standard of which is pretty low these days IMHO (in Germany, that is).

(sorry, no better qualitiy available)

The typeface used looks one of those Caslon revivals, c. 1900; Binny/Bruce/Monotype »Old Style«, etc.: the T, E, the g, the Q, the numerals... but which one is it? Monotype Old Style is close, but it's not quite it. I've had a look at several »proper« Caslons, but none of them had that Q. What's weird about this book, by the way, is that there's no italics it.

Lawson's book has piqued my interest in this typeface, originally known as Binny & Ronaldson's Roman No 1. Does anyone know of a digital implementation? I can't find any on MyFonts or through Google.

I'm aware of Monticello but I understand that's more of a derivative (like Sabon is to Garamond) than a direct adaptation.
