Large hardcover, New with New dustwrapper. Second edition, pp 272. This work provides more than 480 contemporary woodcuts and engravings illustrating the printing presses of the 19th century, often taken from manufacturer's catalogues and advertisements. A final chapter contains illustrations of supplementary printing equipment of the period. The presses include the One Dollar Printing Press - "for the boys who simply wish to print cards", the Union Rotary Press - "powerful and rapid, yet readily understood and run even by a lad of ten", and Geo W. Hunt's Superior Job Printing Press, whose "automatic brayer and ink throw-off are in themselves a sufficient recommendation to ensure its popularity amongst intelligent printers". The illustrations and descriptions illuminate the advances in print technology over the century, and together form a comprehensive resource for any print or publishing historian, or collector of industrial equipment. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, SO FOR UK FIRST CLASS AND INTERNATIONAL, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS WILL BE REQUIRED.
