This French case lay is shown in Audin: Histoire de l'imprimerie par l'image (1929) as being the Casse de Jouglet in Journal des Imprimeurs no.47.16 (1900). The upper case section has roughly three rows of eight boxes, but some are sub-divided. There are thus 54 boxes in the upper section, and 126 boxes overall. In contrast, the Comet case also shown by Audin has 55 upper case boxes and 113 boxes overall, and the case shown later by Hostettler in Technical terms of the printing industry (1949) has 60 upper case boxes and 114 boxes overall.

The box labelled su is for chiffres superieurs (superior figures) and in is for chiffres inferieurs and db is the diable (hell) box for broken type. The 1pt and 1½p are 1pt and 1½pt espaces (spaces), and cad and ½cd are cadratins (ems) and demi-cadratins (ens). The ¦ represents what appears to be a reversed j, whose purpose is uncertain but is possibly ], and the m etc. are superior characters. The i box should be smaller (about the same size as the o box) and the y box should be bigger than the : and ; boxes, and the 1½p k ½cd boxes should be the same size as the 1pt fi cad boxes.

The empty case configuration is Jouglet.
