QuoteI had intended to refer, along with the present day machines, to the Linotype.It is not a type-setting machine - not a machine for setting- up movable types- but one for arranging matrices and for casting from them line bars capable of being printed -imperfectly, however, in my judgment -on a letterpress machine. This Linotype Machine was introduced into this country about twelve months ago by a company which at first asked for a capital of one million sterling. The vendors fixed the purchase price of the patents at 820,000. About 11,000 was spent merely in advertising the company. The machine has been tried in London, and had already been discarded.
