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.
