On the site from the Dutch marginal printers of drukwerkindemarge, I found an article with links to the site of Howard Iron Works, of the Canadian compagny Howard Graphic Equipment Ltd.

for the Dutsh readers under us see

There is an article about the history of the Heidelberg plattenpresses:


All in the perspective of a man selling presses all his live, and at this moment in possession of a museum with beautiful restorated presses.

As an appendix ther is also an account of all different models of 1927 and later
