Description
This small, illustrated paperback book was published by Munn & Company of New York, publisher of the journal Scientific American. Munn was a major patent agent in the late nineteenth century United States, and this "hand book" explains the process of obtaining a patent through its services. It also advertises other Munn & Co. publications and includes drawings of company offices.
The pamphlet is undated but contains data from the 1890 U.S. Census. Hence the rough date of 1895 assigned.
