Empty French Lower Case


This French typecase matches that of Castillon: L'Art de l'imprimerie dans sa veritable intelligence (1783), in Gaskell et al: "An annotated list of printers' manuals to 1850", Journal of the Printing Historical Society no. 4 (1968), and as illustrated in a Smithsonian Institution leaflet (1972). The case has 54 boxes, but has one less row of boxes than in an English case. The equivalent upper case is the Castillon Upper and the lay of the Lower is Castillon Lower.
