Default Does anyone know these typefaces?

Hi folks,
I've just posted a couple of samples at


We're trying to reproduce an old engraved business card at work, and these are the two fonts it uses. I think the one titled Address may be Palatino or Zapf Calligraphic, but I'm stumped on the one in JPC. The closest I can come up with is Michelangelo, but Michelangelo's E and S are wrong, and the serifs are too big. I wish there were some lower case letters, but that E, with the middle bar longer than the top, and the foot of the P should give someone a clue, I hope.

What I'm afraid of is that it may be an old engraving face, with no direct typographical equivalent.

Many thanks for any suggestions!
