From an advertisement by The Linotype Company Limited (UK) in The British Printer, Vol. 6 (1893). This shows the "Square Base" Linotype as manufactured by the English Linotype company. This volume has been digitized by Google from the University of California, Berkeley, copy. Unfortunately, the advertisements were bound at the end in the bound volume, and with the degradation of digital imaging it is no longer possible to determine which number this advertisement was part of. The image above links to a PDF of the entire page. In that PDF, the strange dual-coloration is due to the combination of underlying images formats used by Google Books (the cut is preserved in color as a JPEG2000 image while the rest is monochrome as a JBIG2 image).
