First time here? Maybe read the FAQ.

1699 book printed in Rome, looks old-style, maybe Griffo's

I would like to know if it is an Italian typeface, maybe Venetian (although the book is almost two centuries after those designs).

Seems to be a Venetian style. Nicolas Jenson and Francesco Griffo were early practitioners, and adaptations and variations existed for centuries.

Typefaces of that time weren't named and catalogued as they are now. I can only give you a similar digital revival—Tycho, by Fountain.
