Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


This article, from Henry Lewis Bullen, appeared in the January 1924 issue of The Inland Printer. This issue, along with about 150 others from 1897-1945 are in my collection. I have scanned and uploaded the article to my Photobucket ( account. I will, soon or at some point, scan other articles, but this and another were two of the most fascinating.

If you would like these scanned pictures, please send me an e-mail; the files were, unfortunately, automatically shrunk when I put them on Photobucket.

Since the original post the Photobucket images have been replaced with higher-resolution ones that are easier to read and print quite well - Admin

Many thanks for posting these pages about typesetting machines before the Linotype. I hadn't realised they were here, and I'm delighted to find them.
