New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking for help identifying the font used in the introduction to this 1898 book published by George Bell and Sons. I tried WhatTheFont and didn't find anything close. I also tried Identifont and it suggested Fleischman BT Pro Bold, which is in the right ballpark but not quite right.
This should be a link directly to the first page of the introduction:
And the whole book is available from Google: http://books.google.com/books?id=olgCAAAAYAAJ
Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Even if you can't help, if anybody has any advice about how to approach a historical question like this one, that would also be helpful as well.
