Much of the public domain literature reprinted by Circuitous Root is found directly associated with its subject. Thus it makes sense that Linotype parts catalogs are in the Linecaster section. Some works, however, span too many categories to allow this. In particular, general works such as Legros and Grant's Typographical Printing Surfaces and Thompson's History of Composing Machines necessarily cover both composing machines and casting machines General periodicals such as The Inland Printer deliberately covered the whole field.
Works such as these, therefore, must necessarily find a home in their own category. Since they're also typically very good introductory or survey works, it makes sense to make this a pretty high-level category in the CircuitousRoot Typefoundry and Press Notebook hierarchy.

Lists of Patents
[TO DO] Studies involving patents are best done each within their own technical area. It's easy, however, to miss a patent. Here are overall lists intended to identify (when I finish it) all of the type-related patents relevant to these Notebooks.
