Stop the Presses!
R. Hoe & Company,Patent Newspaper Stop and Cylinder Presses. New York: R. Hoe, 1881.
This large book contains five brilliant chromolithographs of printing presses manufactured by R. Hoe & Company. Illustrated are both newspaper presses and lithographic presses. A quick look at this volume will easily suggest why so few copies have survived. It is simply too large and too thin for shelving. In fact, this copy was stored folded in half, although the damage has since been skillfully repaired.
