A facsimile of the first newspaper page composed on a commercial Linotype. Although printed by offset lithography, the parts composed by the Linotype can still be visibly distinguished from the hand-set type because of a single wrong-font bold face apostrophe. This appears in only three of the stories (see Schlesinger: Ottmar Mergenthaler, Inventor of the Linotype, pp. 113-116).
