Empty Improved Space & Quad Case


This U.S. typecase construction is shown in American Type Founders: American Line Type Book - Borders, Ornaments - Price List Printing Material and Machinery, Boston 1906 and in Barnhart Bros. & Spindler: Book of Type Specimens No.9, 1907, and Hamilton Manufacturing Company: Modern Cabinets, Furniture and Materials for Printers Catalog No. 14, c. 1907. Hamilton state it is a slight modification of the old Space and Quad case (see for example Palmer & Rey), which they no longer list. However, in Hamilton's Catalog 15 of 1922, the case is improved yet further, see Improved, with further divisions in the top row of boxes.

The case layout is Improved Space & Quad.
