Before Photocopying: The Art & History of Mechanical Copying, 1780-1938
The authors cover the art and history of mechanical copying from the dawn of the industrial revolution to the remarkable founding of the Xerox Corporation.
This work presents the first scholarly study of the precursors of today's high-tech, high-speed copiers. Its illustrations offer an incredible array of copying equipment from U.S. Patent Office documents, vintage photographs, and 19th century company catalogs.
Before Photocopying is an important addition to the libraries of all copybook conservators, collectors, and historians of American and British business history.
