QuoteWhile cleaning up under a bench in my workshop I came across a little book called 'Suggestions to Linotype Machinist' publish by linotype in 1911. on the cover is a sticker with the Name 'Parsons Trading Company 20 Vesey Street New York'They had branches in London, Sydney, Wellington, Havana, Bombay etc. in side is a rubber stamp imprint ' Parsons Trading Company (formerly Parsons Bros) Agents Lambton Quay, Wellington. This book covers all models 1-7. I am interested if someone can throw some light on this company It appears they may be an original seller of Linotype Machines.on a second note I also found a Intertype Matrix book which could well be the first one as all fonts shown have no font numbers and they advertise that they can supply Linotype Spares cheaper than Linotype.
