This Czech typecase lay is illustrated in Zahálka: Přehled knihtisku, 1952. The case has 130 boxes, and is divided into three bays vertically, and also divided horizontally into two sections. The case construction almost matches a Czech Single case in the National Technical Museum, Prague in June 2019, apart from the horizontal partition moving to have four and not five rows in the “upper” section. An earlier case and lay, with only 125 boxes, is the Czech Single of 1925.

The empty configuration is Czech Single. The similar case, but with four rows in the “upper” section is Czech Single, and one with no partitioning is Czech Single.

Note that Czech uses the full roman alphabet, plus accented and special letters á č ď (with Ď) é ě í ň ó ř š ť (with Ť) ú ů. Slovak adds ľ and ĺ although these two are not in the earlier 1925 case.
