This highly illustrated work will visually reveal the 19th century printing press revolution starting with the virtually unchanged hand press to the mechanical marvels of the 1890's. This remarkable assembly of 19th century printing equipment illustrations and advertisements is the largest collection gathered in one volume to date.

A careful study of the more than 480 rare woodcuts and engravings of Hand, Cylinder, Platen, Lever, Lithographic, and Rotary presses will reveal the subtle and major changes each manufacturer made to enhance his machine's productivity and printing quality. Never before has the printing or publishing historian had such a comprehensive resource at his disposal. This second, expanded edition has over 150 new illustrations. Co-published with The British Library.
