Patent Model of a Hand Printing Press

Description (Brief)
This patent model demonstrates an invention for a self-inking bench-top press for cards or sheets; the invention was granted patent number 24655. It was the basis for the Newburys' Mountain Jobber or Machine Jobber. Early models followed the patent closely, but later (about 1871) the press had a sloping ink disk. A. N. Kellogg produced a modification of the press, which he patented in 1863 (Patent 37293).
