This Dutch typelay is the No.1 Bovenkas of the Nederduitsche Letterkassenat of Zweijgardt: De Boekdrukkerij (1822) edited by Janssen & Bouman, Enschede/Grafisch Studie-Centrum (1986). Van Cleef in 1844 shows a slight variation, for example making more space for accented E. The companion lower lay is Onderkas No.1. Note that | is the long s and ¦ is a dagger. Hel is the hell box for miscellaneous sorts. The gg £ and s¸ may be incorrect.

The empty case is Bovenkas No.1. Note than unlike the UK/US Upper case, this case has only six rows of boxes. The construction is almost as Ronner, apart from several extra divided boxes in the bottom four rows.
