This French case configuration is shown in Audin: Histoire de l'imprimerie par l'image (1929) as being the Casse Raçon proposed by [François] Pitrat in les Annonces typographiques 1 September 1892. The Upper case section has three rows of eight boxes, rather than three rows of seven boxes. Five of the boxes are subdivided, and thus there are 37 boxes in the upper section, and there are 74 in the lower, a total of 111 boxes. Audin shows various other configurations, for example the Casse Générale (c.1929) with 127 boxes, and in 1949 Hostettler in Technical terms of the printing industry shows one with 114 boxes.
The type lay is Raçon.
