Empty German Case


This German typecase configuration was in the collection of In de Bonnfant in 2004. It is similar to the Fraktur case of Bauer in 1917, but has one more box. It has 110 boxes, as Bauer divides k+ck and h+l but not |t ö and quads, and has only 109 boxes. The case is 66.5 x 51.5cm with inside depth of 3cm.

Note that the i box should be shown larger and thus the spacing box below it smaller, the i box being 2/3 the height of the adjacent m box.
