Russian Typelay

Russian Case
This Russian lay is taken from Lockwood: American Dictionary of Printing and Bookmaking (1894). Russian consists of 35 letters, and has both an upper and lower case version, but will all fit into a single case. Lockwood notes that [in 1894] much of the type was supplied by German foundries. The empty case is a Russian case.

A similar lay is shown by Legros & Grant (1916), the only differences being v (ischitza) and the empty box below both being in undivided boxes with their adjacent characters and the empty space becoming No., and the single dagger being omitted.
