Many advertisements have been reproduced by the late James Parrish in his book The Ludlow System. This is still available from Dave and Beth Seat, Hot Metal Services.
The Ludlow booklets Some Reasons Printers Prefer Ludlow [blue cover] and Some Reasons Printers Prefer Ludlow [striped cover, circa 1960] consist primarily of reproductions of Ludlow advertisements.
I had to scan this in four sections and stitch them together. The stitching isn't perfect, but it could be worse. The image at left links to a 2048 pixel wide JPEG version of this ad. Here is a full-resolution (600dpi) JPEG version of it (13,992 pixels wide, 33 Megabytes): ludlow-m-how-long-newsprint-ad-composite.jpg
All of the advertisements reproduced or extracted from here are in the public domain due to their publication without copyright notice when such notice was required, or the failure to renew copyright as was then required, or the expiration of all possible copyright. The reproductions of/from them here remain in the public domain.
