This Dutch typelay is shown by van Cleef: Handboek ter beoefening der boekdrukkunst in Nederland (1844). It is the same as that of van der Veen: De Verbeterde Nederlandsche Letterkast (1852) except that he omits the :, and it is fairly similar to that of Zweijgardt (1822) but with ij and without long s and ct, for example. The companion upper case is Bovenkas. The empty case is Onderkas No.2.
