Empty Laagen Tekst Romein Onder


This Belgian typecase configuration matches the Laagen Tekst Romein lower case (VV 2,6,R 120-O) (undated, but probably pre 1876) on view in the Plantin-Moretus Museum in 1998. The companion Upper case is Laagen Tekst Boven.

The Onder case has 53 boxes, as does an English Lower case, but there are effectively 3 rows of boxes, unlike U.K. and U.S. cases, which have 3½ rows. The case measures 33½ x 13¾ inches.

There are several other styles of Onder Kasse on view in the Plantin Museum, eg Middelbarr, Klein Canon, Laagen Ascendonica, Kapitalen, Klein Romein.
