This technical manual from the late 19th century provides a comprehensive guide to the process of stereotyping and electrotyping, two methods used to produce printing plates for books and other printed materials. Written by experts in the field, the book covers all aspects of the process, from the creation of a papier-mâché or plaster mold to the final deposition of metal on the plate. Although the technology described in this book has been largely superseded by more modern printing methods, its historic value makes it a fascinating read for anyone interested in the history of the book.
