This Italian lay is that of Pozzoli: Nuovo Manuale di Tipografia (1882) in Gaskell: The Lay of the Case, in Bowers: Studies in Bibliography Vol. 22 (1969). The companion Upper case is Pozzoli. Gaskell's illustration does not show which spacing is in the right hand boxes, so en and em are speculation, but for example, Lockwood shows them in 1894, although in reversed order.

The empty case configuration is Italian Lower.
