Empty Caslon Figure Case


This English typecase construction matches the Figure Case shown in Southward: Modern Printing (2nd ed 1904) as being the figure or table setting case manufactured at the Caslon Foundry, and invented by T.W.Smith. The type lay is Caslon Figure.

A very similar case is shown by De Vinne in 1904, as being useful for tabular figure work, although his case has an extra box in row three, and three less boxes in row four from the top.
