The typecase lay is that used by the University Press, Oxford, in 1934, as supplied by the OUP Archivist. Davis & Carter (in Moxon: Mechanick Exercises) note that the OUP lay continues the old French tradition. For example, the i box is the same as in Diderot's case. The companion upper lay is OUP Upper.
Note the wide q box, where Moxon and modern cases have two boxes, and the single y box, where Moxon and modern cases have two. Note also, for example, the location of i, h and r. The empty case configuration is OUP Lower.
