Default Challenging font ID

A colleague asked me for help indentifying the fonts shown in the attached image. (It's a scan from a book that was published in the late 1800s.)

His client wants him to create the full effect with the type and shadows.

First thing I thought of was that guy who did the fabulous "cigar box label"-style graphics -- someone here must know who I mean, it was mentioned in the forum a couple years ago. I thought I had bookmarked his site (since I bookmark darn near everything else), but can't find it. (And I can't remember if all his lettering was done by hand, anyway.)

Anyone remember who the guy is? Or have any other leads on where to find appropriate fonts?
