Empty Russian Case


This typecase configuration matches the Russian case lay shown by Lockwood, American Dictionary of Printing and Bookmaking, 1894 (New York) reprinted by Gale 1967. The actual lay is Russian Single.

A very similar case is shown by Legros & Grant in 1916, with just two less divided boxes.
