1018_IP_ad.jpgThis ad from The Inland Printer (October 1918, courtesy of John Horn) shows a Vandercook model 17 Composing Room Cylinder press and a Roller Series press. Note that the company, founded in 1909, is still called Vandercook Press. It was incorporated as Vandercook & Sons later that same year. The street address is for the earliest known business location.

  1. Paul,

    This ad made me go dig out my (very few) copies of old printing magazines – in the January 20, 1923 issue of “The American Printer”, the advertiser’s index lists “Vandercook Press” as having an ad on page 16 of the (previous) January 5 issue – naturally that is an issue I don’t have – so did they use “The Vandercook Press” and “Vandercook and Sons” concurrently for a while?
