    No ID Scott. The "R" is a style not seen often (reminiscent of Windsor and Musketeer) and the angled termination of some of the serifs is also distinctive ... most notably in the Garth Graphic family and Raleigh.

    This looks hand lettered to me, and a bit inconsistant at that:

    Each of the E's and A's are different, and the W should be more thick-thin on the strokes compared with the other letters. The serif forms vary too much, also.

    yes, it's a scan (of a print, that was handcut rubylith, prob off of blueline enlargements). i wanted to recreate it to look much more consistant and correct. i may have to redraw, so a basis font would save lots of time.

    Sorry, missed your note at the top of your original post.

    Possible starting points:

    Times Europa, Poppl Pontifex, Releigh except for the R

    Baskerville in a pinch, but the A's are pointy and the R still has straight leg
