Empty Italic Case


This style of U.S. job case has the top three, and bottom, row of caps boxes on the right hand side all the same size and smaller than the middle three rows. It also has the : and ; boxes the same size as the equivalent x q and . - boxes, but may not actually have been made like this. The earlier style, e.g.Harpel (1870) has a right hand bay with seven rows of boxes the same size, and the later style e.g. Hamilton (1922) has the : and ; boxes as smaller than the x q boxes. For all styles, the lay is effectively the same, e.g. Italic Job.
