Empty German/Swiss Latin Case


This typecase configuration is shown by Hostettler: Technical Terms of the Printing Industry (1949 and 4th rev ed 1963) as being the German/Swiss case used by Zollikofer & Co AG for the Latin (as opposed to Fraktur) alphabet. The actual type lay is German/Swiss Latin and there is an equivalent Fraktur case and lay.

The case is divided into three bays, and is very similar to the Antiqua case of Bauer: Handbuch fur Schriftsetzer (1917), except that Hostettler shows the J V and Y Z boxes as divided, and does not divide the p box and the k box.
