Description
This advertisement in Harper’s Weekly for the Adams Cottage printing press appears to have introduced the press, as later advertisements became much smaller in size. One of the testimonials printed here from the quartermaster of the New York Volunteers reads that the press has done the work of the entire Brigade, Orders, Countersigns, Invoices, Receipts, &c.and that every quartermaster in the service [should] procure one immediately.
