Empty Two Rivers Cap Case


This U.S. case is shown in American Type Founders: American Line Type Book (1906) and Barnhardt Bros & Spindler: Book of Type Specimens No.9 (1907) and Hamilton Manufacturing Company: Modern Cabinets, Furniture and Materials for Printers, Catalog 14 (c.1907). The lay of the type can be seen at Two Rivers Cap. The case holds the usual capitals, small capitals, signs and fractions, but in a very different construction from the normal Cap case with seven rows of equal sized boxes, or the later News Cap case with three rows larger than the others.
