    I should add that the HS27 is narrower, suitable for normal column width composition. The Arion Bible NEEDED the 22 to proof its abnormal form width.

    I’ve used the Model 22 and the HS 27 at M&H Type. For rough proofing of quantities of type-matter, they are very efficient to produce reading proofs. (I imagine the pedestal Wesel galley press I saw at Service Type was equivalent.) You have an inking pass, and if you need a second pass for clean type, you lay waste stock on the form so the ink doesn’t go onto the impression roller. No grippers.
    If you have a galley of matter, type or plate, it makes quick early proofs. If you need to see every detail, every serif and period, you want a standard cylinder proof press. It would not be a production press in normal circumstances, but needs must.

    Here’s a photo from the manual for the similar 23.

    To expand on Eric’s comment, the form rollers and the vulcanized rubber impression cylinder pass over the form, then travel under the bed in a loop.

    The 22, in production 1934–60, was complemented by the larger 23 in production 1931–1943. The even larger HS-27 was in production 1964–1976. See a video of the HS-27: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXvU-KDPE0k

    Read the description of the 22 from the 1941 catalog page below.

    The 22 is an electric galley press. The form rollers and an impression roller are on bicycle chains, activated by a foot treadle.
