Orcut, William Dana and Edward E. Bartlett The Manual of Linotype Typography. (Brooklyn, NY: The Mergenthaler Linotype Company, 1923).
It is the frontispiece, and bears the title "The Hand that Keeps the World Informed. It is perhaps more inspired by German Expressionism, and more appropriate in period to Dieselpunk, but the Linotype was a quitessentially Victorian invention and I find it very Steampunk. See: The Linotype as Steampunk
The image that "clicks through" from the one above is scaled to a reasonable size (1024x1327 pixels, 447 Kilobytes). Here is a link to the original scanned image at 1200dpi. It is quite unreasonable in size, 10040 x 13964 pixels, and 213 Megabytes, but it should be online at full resolution somewhere - why not here?): manual-of-linotype-typography-1923-000-02-ii-frontis-1200rgb.png
The Manual of Linotype Typography was copyright 1923, but this copyright was not renewed as was then required. It therefore passed into the public domain upon the expiration of its initial copyright. The image reprinted from it here remains in the public domain.
