That looks like Benguiat Medium
(http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.asp?pid=202715) to me. (The Benguiat family also includes lighter and heavier variants and an italic version.)

Another resource is Identifont (http://www.identifont.com/). It asks you a series of questions, and looks like a typography novice could use it (i.e. it explains any technical terms it uses). It works best if you have lots of text to work with, but you can specify a small set of letters (e.g. Q, R, e, n, s, t, and u), and it'll do the best it can.

Barely OT: Identifont seems like a web site for the kind of narrowly focussed and mostly-useless knowledge a Lankhor Mhy devotee would love.
