Described as an "Intertype Book Press" on Flickr this machine is housed in a very spacious building.

So spacious, in fact, that it's hard to see if the other exhibits are print-related.

Anyone seen this one, while visiting the pyramids, perhaps?

Dave,

I was able to find the actual location of the machine. It is in a library in Alexandria, and what a library!
