De Vinne Triple Case

        XYZJU &        

This U.S. typecase lay is shown by De Vinne: The Practice of Typography - Modern Methods of Book Composition (1904 and 1914). He states the case is to be used for petty founts of display types on small bodies, which are seldom needed in bookwork. It can also be used for accents, signs, etc.

The empty configuration is the Triple of Harpel (1870), etc. There is a later version of the Triple (eg 1923) which has larger boxes in the fourth, fifth and sixth rows from the top, across the whole case.
