New York: R. Hoe & Co., [c. 1867]. 4to, original maroon cloth, gilt-stamped title on front cover. Chromolithographic title page, [2]-138 pp., numerous engravings.

An excellent catalog published by one of the great printing press manufacturers of the 19th century, including a wide variety of printing machinery and tools, with many fine illustrations. Hoe manufactured a number of quite large printing machines which strike the eye as great marvels of invention. Their Ten Cylinder Type-Revolving Printing Machine, the first illustrated in the catalog, evidently required eight men working on three levels to operate. Head of the company Robert Hoe III (1839-1909) was a preeminent book collector, a founder of the Grolier Club and its first president.

CONDITION: Good, cloth chewed in a few places at spine, rubbed, lower fore-corner of covers bumped, endpapers foxed, contents generally quite clean and attractive.
