      Oak Knoll has recently bought the remaining copies of an esteemed title on
      printing history entitled "Print Unchained: Fifty Years of Digital Printing,
      1950-2000 and Beyond." Originally offered at a retail of $125, we are now
      selling the title for $49.95, less than 40% of the original price.



      "Print Unchained" in many ways continues the story started with our previous
      title "Before Photocopying," in that it chronicles the evolution of printing
      and coping technology and its role in office efficiency. Together they are
      important references for anyone interested in manuscripts and archives or in
      the continued evolution of printing technologies outside the world of
      commercial book production.

      PRINT UNCHAINED: FIFTY YEARS OF DIGITAL PRINTING, 1950-2000 AND BEYOND - A
      SAGA OF INVENTION AND ENTERPRISE

      By Edward Webster

      First edition. Written to fill a perceived gap in technology history, the
      author seeks not only to document but also to celebrate the role digital
      printing has taken in the dissemination of ideas and images. Containing
      background and instructional material, Part One first examines the roots of
      digital printing and then the various technologies, applications and broad
      changes in both the products and the industry over the fifty years from 1950
      to 2000. In Part two, each decade is closely examined by focusing on one or
      two industry-changing companies, following their contributions from their
      inception to the present day. From Adobe to Xerox, from IBM and GE to
      Dataproducts and Printronix, the stories of these entrepreneurs and managers
      who helped make this revolution happen unfold, many times in their own
      words. A review of the patterns and lesson learned and a look into the
      future of digital printing comprise Part Three, followed by a glossary, a
      bibliography and an index. There are, of course, numerous black & white and
      color illustrations.

      BEFORE PHOTOCOPYING: THE ART AND HISTORY OF MECHANICAL COPYING 1780-1938

      By William W. Streeter

      First edition. Well-written and fully documented with more than 1,000 rare
      illustrations, the authors cover the art and history of mechanical copying
      from the dawn of the industrial revolution to the remarkable founding of the
      Xerox Corporation. This work reveals the importance of the humble copy press
      from its origins in England in 1770 to its demise in the 1930s. In Part One,
      noted historian Barbara Rhodes reveals the social impact of the copy press
      in the office, and the traditions, materials, and methods used. In Part Two,
      William Streeter, one of the foremost collectors and authorities on the
      subject, takes the reader into early development and manufacture of
      mechanical copying equipment. This work is an important addition to the
      libraries of copybook and equipment collectors, conservators, and historians
      of British and American business history.
