This English lay is the No.2 Lower, following Lord Stanhope, as given in Stower, The Printer's Grammar (1808), reprinted Gregg (1965). This case construction has 40 boxes, but Johnson (1824) gives a very different version of Stanhope's case, with 43 boxes and the extra ligatures. Note that a normal Lower, eg Johnson New, has 53 boxes.
The companion Upper case is Stower Upper No.2.
