The Linotype Bulletin (Jan 1911)
The back cover of The Linotype Bulletin. Vol. 7, No. 1 (January, 1911) shows an ad for the Mergenthaler Linotype Lead and Rule Caster which (the ad, that is) employs Linotype Border Slide No. 256 (presumably as cast on the Lead and Rule Caster), together with "Nuernberger-Rettig Typecaster corners." This is all the more interesting as by November of that year (1911) Mergenthaler was announcing itself as the sales representative not for Nuernberger-Rettig but for Thompson.
