"The Transition from Hand-Set to Machine-Set Composition"
« on: June 23, 2006, 04:11:09 AM »
This article, from Henry Lewis Bullen, appeared in the January 1924 issue of The Inland Printer. This issue, along with about 150 others from 1897-1945 are in my collection. I have scanned and uploaded the article to my Photobucket ( account. I will, soon or at some point, scan other articles, but this and another were two of the most fascinating.

If you would like these scanned pictures, please send me an e-mail; the files were, unfortunately, automatically shrunk when I put them on Photobucket.

Since the original post the Photobucket images has been replaced with higher-resolution ones that are easier to read and print quite well - Admin

Many thanks for posting these pages about typesetting machines before the Linotype. I hadn't realised they were here, and I'm delighted to find them.
