Book Paper

I'm designing a 600-pg book which will have some color photo galleries but is primarily text. It will be printed on an Indigo. Any suggestions for a good text paper?

You may recognize this as being the First Edition of Moby Dick printed in New York 1851. I am hoping to source typefaces that are from the period that have a very close DNA.

Monotype Modern seems like a logical relative but I cannot find anything condensed/compressed enough.

Your help on this is greatly appreciated.

P.S. Please omit the conjunction "OR," from your type identification.

P.P.S. My apologies if I am not using the word "Transitional" properly.
