Empty Hebrew Lower Case


This typecase construction matches the Hebrew Lower of Johnson: Typographia (1824) and Hansard: Typographia (1825), and has 54 boxes. The equivalent Upper Case is the standard Moxon configuration. Van Winkle, in 1818, shows a Lower, also shown by Timperley in 1838, and Southward in 1882, which has 56 boxes.

Note there is a slight distortion in the diagram, and in the fifth column from the left, the top three boxes should all be the same size, and the same size as the top two boxes in the seventh column.
