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.

2000, hardcover, 11.25 x 9.5 inches, 272 pages

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.

1999, hardcover, 9 x 12 inches, 498 pages

ISBN 1884718612   Order No. 054108   Price: $95.00
