Empty German Latin Case


This typecase configuration is one that was in the collection of In de Bonnfant in 2004. The type lay is German Latin. The case is 66.5 x 51.5cm, with inside depth 3cm. It has 130 boxes, and is similar to the Latin case of Hostettler, 1949, except that Hostettler has four less divided boxes, i.e. the fi f k and a spacing box, thus totalling only 126 boxes.

Note that in this diagram, the i box should be bigger, at 2/3 the size of the adjacent m box, and the spacing box is thus smaller.
