Adjustments (1936)

Monotype Material Making Machine Adjustments. (Philadelphia, PA: Lanston Monotype Machine Company, 1936)

Thanks are due to Raky Press for preserving this document and making it available. The paper original of this document is in poor condition as acquired by Raky Press. It lacks its cover. Curiously, the sheet containing pp. 15-16 and 81-82 seems never to have been bound in to it (it was slipped in after p. 80). In this reprint I have placed these four pages digitally in their correct sequence.

Operating and Adjustment (1959)

Monotype Material Making Machine: Operating and Adjustment Manual . (Philadelphia, PA: Lanston Monotype Company division of Lanston Industries, Inc., 1959). The production of this manual as a typescript (by a company which once claimed to have dominated fine typography) is a telling indication of the state of affairs at the former Lanston Monotype Machine Company at this time.
