In which country (if any) is your work set? Language choice can 
influence choice of font. Also, if you are thinking of the mid-19th 
century, you have a choice of ancient countries (Ireland, Scotland) or 
new countries (Italy and Germany are hardly 150 years old, for example) 
so fonts typically used then in those two new-born or about to be born 
countries might seem futuristic to a 19th century reader, only to squish 
or elongate them a little.
