Empty French Lower Case


This French configuration matches the Casseau Inferieau de Longues et de Breves of Fertel: La Science Practique de l'Imprimerie (1723, reprinted Gregg 1971). Most of the long and short accents are in the Upper case, but some are fitted in the Lower, and thus the case needs more divided boxes than Fertel's Casseau Inferieau des Caracteres Vulgaires, and it has a total of 61 boxes.

The lay is Fertel and the companion empty Upper is Moxon's.
