Description
Kits for the Adams Cottage Press were sold in five different sizes, enabling the production of different-sized documents. The kits, along with the press, included printing equipment such as type, rollers, and ink.
The advertisement reads: To the army and navy . . . they will be found very useful. They can be packed within the compass of a common traveling trunk, and transported any distance without injury. We have supplied quite a number of regiments with portable printing offices, and they have given universal satisfaction. Rear-Admirals Farragut, Goldsborough and Bailey have each one of our printing offices in their respective fleets.
