The above press is especially designed for fine Book, Job or Color Work, and commends itself to printers on account of its simplicity, and the ease with which it may be handled.

It has no Tapes, but delivers the sheet clean side to the Fly in front, and thus prevents all smutting of sheets. This delivery also does away with the necessity of a delivery cylinder under the feed-board, and leaves the bed as accessible for the “making ready" of sorms as an imposing stone. The impression can be tripped at will by the feeder.
