What is the Artful Dodger font?

The Artful Dodger is a character in Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist. Dickens wrote his books in the Victorian Era, which also gave birth to a beautiful and extensively used typeface called Clarendon. The typeface was developed by Robert Besley and first published in 1845. Artful Dodger was modeled on the glyphs found in a 1865 book, which was typeset in Clarendon. Artful Dodger has not been ‘cleaned’, so the glyphs look rough and worn, just like the book I found them in.
