About this title


Schenck worked for over half a century in the typesetting and photolithographic equipment industry, and his great grandfather started a printing business in Edinburgh in 1842 that lasted nearly 140 years. Here he traces the first 50 years of the new lithographic printing process in the country, identifying over 700 practitioners and providing as much as in known about dates, addresses, and works. They are alphabetical order so he does not index them. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
