Einteilung des Antiquakastens

   A     B     C      D     E     F     G      H     I     K  

This German type lay is for Antiquakastens ohne Kapitälchen (ie Latin without small caps) and matches that illustrated in Bauer: Handbuch für Schriftsetzer (4th ed 1917, and again in 1920). It is not quite the same as the standard Antiqua lay as for example the box under R is divided (for J U), U is replaced by V and the box below it is undivided (with Z), Ç and ç are separated, Æ and æ are separated, etc.

The boxes with | have a long s. The -- is an em dash. The ¦ is a dagger. Ausschluß is gevierte = em, halbgevierte = en, drittelgevierte = thick, viertelgevierte = mid, and 1½punkte and 1punkte. The empty case configuration is Antiqua, and the case with small caps is Antiqua mit Kapitälchen.
