Personal Impressions: The Small Printing Press in Nineteenth-Century America
Elizabeth M. Harris (au)
Printing was the most widespread, & the most competitive, bus. of 19th-cent. America. Every city had not only its big presses for printing catalogues, books, & newspapers but also countless smaller operations for printing pamphlets, posters, handbills, stationery cards, & tickets. Several pub. giants today -- F. N. Doubleday, Henry Houghton & George Mifflin, Donald Brace of Harcourt Brace, the legendary Alfred A. Knopf -- began their careers in mfg. or as printers. This definitive, & richly illus. survey of small 19th-cent. printing presses is the first history of these varied machines. It catalogues, describes, & illustrates over 100 presses, with their makers, giving machine spec. as well as patent info.
