IIRC, early Puffin DWJ tended to be in Juliana.  Cart and Cwidder I think was;
or you could try Wilkins' Tooth.  I also have some Nicholas Fisk in Puffin,
using that font.

I agree Juliana is a splended font - I wonder if it's available in Truetype?  I
don't know Pilgrim, though - I too will have to start searching my book
collection.  (Witch week? ;-) )  Or my parents have Puffins of the Earthsea
