Empty (Italic) Job Case


This configuration matches that shown in De Vinne: Practice of Typography - Modern Methods of Book Composition (1904 and 1914). The actual lay is (Italic) Job. Note that the upper case bay has 8 boxes in each row, unlike the more usual 7 boxes, a version of which is also shown by De Vinne, as well as by Harpel in 1870, and Lockwood in 1894, ATF in 1906, etc. The later Improved Job version of that has three upper bay rows larger than the other four rows.
