Hello, typophiles,

Can anyone help me find the closest match to this sample from 1922 (book cover for Oswald Spengler's Decline of the West - looks like gold leaf or perhaps embroidery?)

It is a Trajan-style, however Trajan itself doesn't match the serifs, which are almost half-serifs. Once I have a typeface that's pretty darned close, I can make modifications like the swashes etc.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

You can see part of the book (link to pdf) here: http://web.uvic.ca/~mvp1922/versions/ulysses_episodesI_III_frontmatter.pdf

The paper is Dutch, perhaps also the type?
