1. Overview

{L&M Circa 1936}, pp. 33, 36-37 shows and describes the All-Purpose Linotype. It is not clear to me that there was actually a separately engineered English version of the American All-Purpose-Linotype, but there might have been.

2. Characteristics and Appearance

Here is the All-Purpose Linotype as presented in the Linotype & Machinery book The Linotype: Its Mechanical Details and their Adjustments, circa 1936. {L&M Circa 1936}, p. 33.
