Empty California Lower Case


This U.S. case is based on the description in Ringwalt: American Encyclopaedia of Printing (1871). The actual lay is California Lower, and is a modification of the U.S. Lower of BBS (1890s), for the improved Californian lay that was in use in San Francisco. The h box is divided into three (for ens 5em 4em spaces), the c box into two (for c and u), and the en quad box divided into two (for $ and &)
