Notes:

This is the lower half of the figure, and shows (not by coincidence) how the miniscule letters, now called lower case letters, were stored in the type case.

Note that quadrat is from the Latin for square, and refers to an Em space, that is, a space whose width and height is the same, and hence the same as the type size.
