THE recent issue of M. A. Ducrot's “Presses modernes typographiques,” published by the house of Gauthier-Villars, Paris (7 f. 50 c.), provides an opportunity for a short account of modern printing presses. The work is copiously illustrated, and describes, from a mechanical point of view, every kind of machine, from the small but handy platen to the awe-inspiring rotary, whilst the intermediate classes of cylinder machines are represented by many varieties, both of the single and double kind.
