Printing Presses: History and development from the Fifteenth Century to Modern Times

Front Cover
This book, the most comprehensive of its kind, surveys the history of the relief printing press and machine from its inception as an adaptation of a domestic screw press in the middle of the fifteenth century to the giant, fast rotary presses of today. It covers every type of press, including some to which, hitherto, little attention has been paid. Each group is described, together with information on performance and with specific examples of use. -- Book flap.
