[NOT DONE] P. 162 (Google PDF p. 183).

Note that Huss lists two inventions for Church in 1823: "Cylinder Press for the Printing of Fabrics" cited from Abridgments (1959), p. 162, and "Segmented Type with Radial Faces," cited from Legros and Grant (1916). Both of these, however, are references to No. 4,760, which describes a cylinder press employing curved type.
