Together with the Linotype machine that used the same principle for quicker newspaper publications, the Monotype revolutionized the business of printing.

On this day, June 7, in Tolbert Lanston patented his first monotype mechanical typesetting device, the first machine-set Monotype, (trademark), in commercial printing, typesetting machine patented by Tolbert Lanston in that produces type in individual characters, unlike Linotype, which sets type an entire line at a time.A Monotype machine consists of a key keyboard, a caster, and a replaceable matrix case divided into quadrants, each holding one complete type :// Later refinements led to the Monotype casting machine and the emergence of the Lanston Monotype Company as one of the most renowned type supply companies in the world.

The Monotype caster was revolutionary and along with other automated typesetting machines helped to usher in a new age of printing ://   "Illustrations of the Parts of the Monotype Casting Machine with their Names and Symbols." This is the "Plate Book" (i.e., illustrated parts list) for the Lanston Monotype Composition Caster and the Lanston Monotype Type-&-Rule Caster.

This booklet is from a Lanston Monotype specimen book (binder) bearing the general title "Monotype Type Faces."   A twelve page sales brochure for the Lanston Monotype Giant Caster.

This is was a typecasting machine capable of casting type up to 72 points in size, as well as fused strip material. It was called the "Giant" caster because of its capabilities; the machine itself is of modest size. The Giant Caster was introduced in   Mergenthaler Linotype and Lanston Monotype became leaders in this revolution.

Monotype's way has survived and is being carried on by American Typecasting Fellowship members and others and likewise with slugcasting machine usage. Other survivors in hot metal have been Thompson foundry and Intertype and Ludlow slug casting (Philadelphia, PA: Lanston Monotype Machine Company, ).

This typecaster, derived from the Lanston Monotype Composition Caster, casts sorts and fonts intended for hand setting from 5 to 36 point.

It uses Monotype "cellular" matrices from 5 to 12 points and Monotype display matrices above :// Manual for the Lanston Monotype Material Making Machine, a fusion strip-casting machine for letterpress printing leads, slugs, and rule. edition as revised in Thanks are due to Raky Press for preserving this document and making it available.
