Mergenthaler Linotype Co. ;  Search this
Notes content:
1891 ; printing machines ; has unique photo of machine by "Rapid Photo Co." ; John R. Rogers' Typograph was introduced in 1890 and because of its simplicity and light weight was considered a fine machine. The Rogers Typograph was involved in a patent infringement battle, as were many new fledged typesetting machines of this period. An injunction was secured against its manufacture in the United States, and only a year after the debut of the Typograph, Rogers' company and its important patent rights to the double-wedge justifier were sold to Merganthaler. The Typograph was a direct predecessor of the Linotype Junior, introduced by Merganthaler in 1902. http://www.printmuseum.org/pages/collection.html
