Description

The family of Robert Hoe IV (1833–1909), the first president of the Grolier Club, made its fortune in manufacturing printing presses. Richard March Hoe (1812–1886) patented the first rotary newspaper printing press in 1845, and after 1871, the Hoe web perfecting press superseded it in newspaper work. This tabbed, multi-colored paper model of the web perfecting press, printed in chromolithography, appeared in a September 13, 1896 supplement to The Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
