Haddon Improved Jobbing Double Case


This case configuration corresponds to the Haddon case currently owned by J.Stafford Baker and obtained from the Talbot Press, Essex, in the late 1960s. It is a version of the Improved Double shown by Southward, except that his upper case bay has one less row of boxes, the bottom row being full size, rather than split into two smaller rows as here. The Improved Double Case of Stephenson, Blake & Co. (1922) has six rows, as here, but differs in having two small rows at the top, then four large rows, rather than the one small row and three large rows and two small rows as here. The actual type lay is Talbot Double.
