This French lay is shown in Castillon: L'Art de l'imprimerie dans sa veritable intelligence (1783), in Gaskell et al: "An annotated list of printers' manuals to 1850", Journal of the Printing Historical Society no. 4 (1968), and as illustrated in a Smithsonian Institution leaflet (1972). The equivalent upper is the Castillon case.

The | represents the long s. The en box has demi quadrats and the em box quadrats. Note that the j is in the Upper and that like Diderot and OUP, the i is where US/UK normally put h.
