At the time this was printed, many metal type foundries across the US and Europe offered generically named “Romans” in this style. It would be a challenge to pinpoint exactly which one was used here, but you can find many similar designs – metal and digital – by starting with the Modern/Scotch genre on Fonts In Use.
