The Press at Deerbrook

jeffhaste's picture

This a turn of the century R. Hoe cast iron press approx. 22 by 29 platen with a rack and pinion instead of a rounce , and the platen has been thickened for rigidity making it quite strong and reliable. The Cincinnati pres I worked on, in the attachment, an earlier model had a thin platen with large fin braces could still print a large folio the size of a sheet of Roma handmade laid.
Also attached are some cases of hand type from the bank, galleys, and a form.
The sideways galley has Ludlow lines in it. I'll correct it at some point.
Please note; you can control click on large images to open in a new widow if need be.
