Love that "Time-saving Linotype Machine" illustration. Wouldn't mind a scan ;)


Hi Johno, no problem, I'll sort on out tomorrow.


The design and typography looks very similar to The Wonderland of Knowledge, a set of encyclopedias from the 30s. I was given a set when I was a kid and I've toyed with the idea of scanning the lot in, but 12 volumes...


Oh my God--that brought back memories of an old dusty cupboard, and my grandfather's book collection. (Also a Brittanica 1919 edition)
