Default Twenties Font?

I just got a copy of Muriel Draper's Music at Midnight and it's not only a delightful book (reminiscences, stylish little vignettes of people and events literary and artistic, great bedtime reading) but delightfully produced by Harper NY, in 1929.

The text font is rather unusual --there's a connector between the (lc) c's and s's and the t's, rather a high loopy arc. I think I just saw a similar font in one of the sites Kathleen gave links to, but can't find it now. I'm sure someone can name it right off the top of his or her head.

It's unusual for a book of this age not to somewhere tell at least the font name. Often you get a whole little history too.
