Description

Perspective view of the Dickinson-Lorenz machines, with the distributer on the left and the typesetter on the right. They are described as follows by the author:

The Dickinson-Lorenz Machines have been applied to actual work in New York with notably successful results. The apparatus is in two parts, and consists, first, of mechanism for composing the type in a continuous line, justifying from this continuous line into the required measure, and depositing in order upon the usual galley; and second, machinery for distributing “dead matter,” that its types may be again used.
