Catalog No. 51 (741.51.F-QQ-7-5X)

Parts Catalog for Assembling and Distributing Mechanisms for Blue Streak Linotypes, Models 5, 29, 30, 31, 32; Catalog No. 51. (Brooklyn, NY: Mergenthaler Linotype Company, 1952) This catalog covers the mature "Blue Streak" line of machines in "regular" sizes (that is, excluding the "Rangemaster" models 33 to 36). Its companion is Catalog No. 52, Casting and Driving Mechanisms (which covers both regular and Rangemaster models).

I scanned this some years ago, before I realized that no printing is truly black-and-white, so aside from the cover it is in greyscale. I would do it in color were I to do it again.

The easiest way to read this is to view the version that I've uploaded to The Internet Archive. Because of its size, it is in two parts:
