Stanley. Lanston and the Microscope (1908)

Stanley, F. A. "The Microscope in the Manufacturing Plant." This appeared originally in American Machinist, Vol. 31, [number unknown] (January 16, 1908): 77-79. This article was reprinted as a chapter in C. L. Goodrich and F. A. Stanley's book Accurate Tool Work (NY: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1912): 139-146. It discusses the use of the microscope in matrix manufacturing by the Lanston Monotype Machine Company.

The Engineer (1914)

Anon. "A Visit to the Works of the Lanston Monotype Corporation." This article appeared in three parts in the London-based periodical The Engineer in the issues of 1914-02-20, 1914-02-27, and 1914-03-06.

This is one of the few early accounts to treat in any technical detail the entire process of matrix production by machine methods. It is also an important piece of historical documentation because it describes a method of cutting working patterns through wax on a zinc plate (not the glass plate of later English Monotype practice). This method is not described elsewhere; it is interesting to speculate on whether it might illuminate the incompletely understood early ATF practice of using zinc plates for working patterns.
