Empty Two Third Upper Case


This English configuration is the two third case shown by Miller & Richard: Specimens of Book Newspaper Jobbing and Ornamental Types (1894) and still in Printing Type Specimens (1927). It is 23½ inches, rather than the normal full size 32½ inches wide although there are the normal 49 + 49 boxes in the case.

Miller and Richard showed a companion Two Third Lower with 52 boxes and also a Two Third Double case which has 81 boxes.
