Empty 'Stower' Greek Lower Case


This typecase construction matches the Greek Lower of Stower, Printer's Grammar (1808), and Timperley, The Printers Manual (1838). The case has 45 boxes. The companion Upper Case is Greek Upper. The later Southward: Practical Printing (3rd ed 1887) shows almost the same lower case, but divides the rho box horizontally into two. The earlier Smith case of 1755 has more divided boxes, and still uses a divided s (sigma) box.
