      From the blurb: "The object of this book is to bring together in handy form information about the way in which printers have composed alphabetic characters from the invention of printing from movable types until today. Originally conceived as a history of type-composing machines, it has been extended in both directions to cover type-casting and hand setting and film-setting and computers.The parts of this book devoted to machines in current use do not go into great detail because there are instruction handbooks available and because improvements take place from time to time which render certain descriptions out-of-date. . Computer-setting, in particular, will tend to develop rapidly and only an outline is provided because even as I write the situation is changing." Contents: Introduction; 1 Movable type; 2 Evolution of the composing machine; 3 The composing machine : first stage; 4 The Composing machine : second stage ; 5 Two variants; 6 Composition of matrices; 7 Film-setting; 8 Teletypesetting and computers; Reading List; Index."
