“Printing Apparatus for the Use of Amateurs” – Cowper

Here I am, post Sissinghurst, blogging again about some of the print-related ephemera that’s proving especially interesting and useful for my current research.

Today’s link is here, a brilliant e-version of the instructions for the Holtzappel-Cowper press, 1876.

Instructions 1876 Parlour Press

I’m currently writing a paper entitled “Scandalous Documents: Print, Porn and the Parlour Press”, for this conference. 

I’ll post the abstract here when I’m done.
