Composition Mold 3E

"New Style 3E Monotype Composition Mold." (Philadelphia, PA: Lanston Monotype Machine Company, 1934). Advertising brochure introducing the mold. This brochure is undated, but the Directions for Care and Cleaning [of] The Style 2E Non-Adjustable Monotype Mold indicate that the 2E was superseded by the 3E in 1934.

Thanks are due to Sky Shipley of Skyline Type Foundry for making this literature available.

1903 Monotype Advertisements

From The Inland Printer. An 8-page illustrated insert in the November 1903 number which gives a nice technical marketing overview of the Monotype. A 4-page insert in the December 1903 number which introduces an "attachment" for converting the composition caster to the casting of sorts and fonts of type (no illustrations, though).

See ../ Technical / 'Making Sure' At the Monotype Works , which is semi-technical but perhaps more promotional.
