This English typecase lay is that of Mr Hazard of Bath, given in Stower, The Printer's Grammar (1808), reprinted Gregg (1965). Note the unusual location of the spacing, and the slightly different box configuration, eg in the bottom row, as compared with a normal lower case such as Johnson's of 1824. This is the first time the spacing has been shown split, although as Davis & Carter note (in Moxon), Johnson (1824) is the first to show it split in a standard Lower case. There is a somewhat similar new arrangement of the case proposed by MacKellar from 1866 to 1889, again separating out the spacing.
The companion Upper case is Hazard Upper and the empty box configuration is Lower Case.
