From the publisher: "Printing was the most widespread and competitive business of 19th-century America. Several of the names we recognize as giants of the publishing industryóScribner, Doubleday, Houghton, and Braceóstarted out not as publishers but as small-job printers, running their own shops and working basic, manual presses. This survey of small 19th-century printing presses, richly illustrated with period engravings and written by a former curator at the Smithsonian Institution, is the first catalog of these lovely, useful, and prodigiously varied machines; it is a mine of previously undocumented printing history." 200pp.
