This U.S. style of case has a right hand (caps) bay with two short rows and four tall rows, and is shown in the U.K. by Cefmor: Printers Equipment and Sundries (1955). Note that in the lower case central bay, a normal English Improved Double does not have the divided box above the i box. The case also differs from the more usual California Job and California Job cases, which have a caps bay with one short row, three tall rows, and one short row, as shown by Atkins: Art & Practice of Printing (1932), Whetton: Practical Printing & Binding (1946 and still in 1965), Hostettler: The Printer's Terms (1949 and still in 1963), Stephenson Blake & Co: Printing Equipment (1960s) and in the U.S. for example by Henry: Printing for School and Shop (1917), Hamilton Manufacturing Co: Catalog (1922 and 1930), Polk: The Practice of Printing (1926, 1937 and rev ed 1964), Thompson Cabinet Co: Catalog (1949), Polk & Gage: A Composition Manual (1953), Missouri-Central Type Foundry: Price List (1959), and American Printing Equipment & Supply Co (1983).
