This French lay is given by Fertel: La Science Practique de l'Imprimerie, 1723, reprinted Gregg, 1971. Note that the case only has six rows of boxes, unlike the more normal 7 rows of e.g. Moxon's Upper and Fertel's own Casse Superieure de Longues, and Diderot's Haut de Casse. Fertel has the figures and some ligatures in the Lower case. The | represents a long s and the A B are small caps.

The empty case configuration is Casse Superieure and the companion Lower lay is Fertel.
