This English layout is one used by Richard Lawrence, in Oxford in 2015, and which came from Oxord University Press. The layout thus reflects OUP's lays, which stem from the French tradition, for example i goes where h would normally go, and it follows the OUP Lower lay. However, the double case has brought [ and ( into the lower section, rather than the upper, and has kept k and j in the upper. Since the lower case boxes were larger, the double case has doubled up on some of the boxes, e.g. y q r , and even 1 and . and has replaced em and en spaces with . and ,. As with most Double cases, the position of the ligatures and punctuation differs from other cases (see for example Variations).
The empty case configuration is Improved Double of Miller & Richard in 1894. The earlier Double of Southward (1882) had 7 rows ie 49 boxes in the upper case bay, and a later Improved version of Miller & Richard (1895) has 5 rows of boxes, ie 35 boxes.
