This U.S. lay is shown in De Vinne: Practice of Typography: Modern Methods of Book Composition (1904 and 1914). The empty configuration is (Italic) Job. Note that the case has eight boxes per row in the upper case bay, unlike the Italic (Job) also shown by De Vinne, and by eg American Type Founders: American Line Type Book (1906), etc., which has only seven boxes per row. Also, this is the original style of upper case bay, with all upper case boxes the same size. Improved styles, such as the California, have only five rows, with the top row smaller than the rest.
