This English typecase layout is shown by Adana in Printing Machines and Type Sundries for the Small Printer 1934 as one of their new wooden Junior type cases. The case is 11⅜ x 7¾ inches and fits in Adana's own small cabinet. It has 44 boxes and is intended to be a more economical size for small founts of type. The layout is not the most convenient, because of the number of boxes that contain several characters, and there is no provision for ( ) [ ] or the ligatures ff fi fl ffi ffl. The Æ box also contains æ and œ and J and U are in alphabetic order, unlike their traditional position at the end of the alphabet, but Q is in with Y and Z.
There is an alternative style of case for a complete fount, and also an alternative arrangement where two cases are combined for the one fount. The empty cases are shown as Junior Cases.
