17th century

I'm designing a book on Renaissance and Baroque bronze figurative sculpture and am looking for an elegant font to suit. Something along the lines of DTL Elzevir, perhaps? Would be most grateful for any suggestions.

Can anyone help me find a typeface that would suitably replace the one used in this beuatiful 17th Century engraving of a stellar atlas by the astronomer Johannes Hevelius:

Any help will be appreciated
