The Ludlow Typograph Machine is named after Washington I. Ludlow, but the machine as we know it is not the machine he proposed. His original machine, which was built but never seriously marketed, was a composing linecaster for straight text. The machine we know of as a "Ludlow," a noncomposing linecaster for display text, was developed by William A. Reade as a successor to this unsuccessful machine.
William A. Reade: 1866-1930 (1930)
Because my "original" is a photocopy, the image quality of the frontispiece is not as good as it might be. The file is still 13 Megabytes in size, though.
The book reprinted here was published in the U.S. without copyright notice at a time when such notice was required. I believe that it therefore passed into the public domain upon initial publication in 1930. Just to do it, I also checked the copyright renewal records and discovered no renewal for it, which would have been required of it had it been copyrighted upon publication.
