Companion to my April 28, 2008 Lust Bites Post on Proofreading

Instruction on the use of this press (according to Frank S. Henry's Printing for School and Shop, 1917) are:

"To obtain a proof on a galley-press the galley containing the type is placed on the flat bed, the type is inked with a brayer, a sheet of paper is placed on the type, and the roller is run over the face of the type. Owing to the fact that the roller frequently squeezes the type into the paper, the paper is apt to slip over the face of the type and smear the proof. This can be avoided by holding the paper tightly against the roller and rolling them together over the face of the type. Care should be taken to see that the galley has not too thick a bottom, for if the impression is too heavy there is no way of altering it. If the impression is too light, a thin cardboard or a sheet or two of manila paper under the galley will correct the fault. The press is intended only for galleys of type, not for small jobs."

The two pictures of the presses, here and on today's post on Proofreading, are from Galley Proof Press.
