Gould's Greek Lower Case

Greek Lower Case

This English Greek layout is shown by Joseph Gould: The Letter-press Printer (1876) and in the 2nd edition 1881 and still in the fourth edition 1888. The layout is not quite the same as Savage's (1841) as Gould has 47 boxes, whereas Savage has 46 (and 51 in his older style case). By contrast, MacKellar (1870) uses only 44 boxes.

The empty case configuration is Greek, and the companion upper case is the Gould lay.
