Monotype Shareholders List
« on: April 30, 2018, 02:46:53 PM »
This is a  bit off-topic, but it might be of interest. Many years ago I bought from a bookseller the original shares log book of the Monotype Company.  It lists all the original share-owners in the company. (One whom I remember was Mary Mapes Dodge, the author of Hans Brinker; or, The Silver Skates.) I gave the book to the Smithsonian years ago, and it's there if anyone ever needs to look at it.

This guy is rather busy with digitizing lots of rare but interesting things, books, periodicals and more. Scanning it all, that makes it possible to share it on line.

As you can see in the library on this site.

I would like to get more people involved in this. Nobody can have all, but together we might be able to make a lot available on the internet.

Hi Steve, and welcome to the Forum.

I have made a new topic from your post as it did deviate a little from the topic you posted in about Edward Galloway.
