Empty Complete Roman Case


The typecase configuration matches the Complete Roman Case as illustrated by Stephenson, Blake & Co.: Printing Material & Machinery (1922) and by Caslon: Printing Types and Materials (1925) and Cefmor: Printers Equipment & Sundries (1955). It is the same configuration as the Improved Job of Barnhart Bros & Spindler: Pony Specimen (1890s), American Type Founders: Line Type Book (1906), etc., but presumably the size is English (32½x14½ ins) rather than U.S. (32 3/16 x 16 5/8 ins).

The typecase is partitioned into four bays, with one of the bays for normal caps, and one for small caps. The U.S. lay is Improved Job.
