Empty Middelbaar Canon Boven


This Belgian typecase configuration matches the Middelbaar Canon upper case VV 2,6,R15-B (undated, but probably pre 1876, and whose wood looks older than many of the other cases) on view in the Plantin-Moretus Museum. The companion Lower case is Onder and the actual type lay is Boven.

The case is 33½ x 14 inches. Its construction is the same as Klein Romein, apart from the undivided box in the centre bottom row of the left bay. Note that there are only 6 rows of boxes, unlike U.K. and U.S. upper cases, which have 7 rows. Two other cases in the Museum also have 7 rows, eg Laagen Ascendonica and Klein Canon Romein.
