posting. Bill's contact information, including his email link and a

"Before Photocopying: The Art and History of Mechanical Copying 1780 -
1938", by Barbara Rhodes and William Wells Streeter.

"The writers' exhaustive research aptly removes the mystery
surrounding the origin and use of copying presses, a familiar device
regularly mislabeled as a bookbinder's press. This book will stand
alone as the definitive source of information on the subject of copying
presses Mark Barbour, Director and Curator, International Printing
Museum, Los Angeles, CA
