This Dutch typelay is the No.2 Onderkas of the Nederduitsche Letterkassen of Zweijgardt: De Boekdrukkerij (1822) edited by Janssen & Bouman, Enschede/Grafisch Studie-Centrum (1986). Note that | is the long s. £ and gg may be incorrect. There is a later variation shown by van Cleef in 1844, omitting some of the ligatures but including ij.

The empty case configuration is Onderkas No.2. The companion upper case is Bovenkas No.2. Zweijgardt shows another Onderkas No.1 lay, with an extra division in the top lefthand box, with ligatures in different boxes, and with ç in the lower case.
