Description: After a wide ranging career, Kahan took early retirement to pursue his lifelong interest in the printing trade. He found many conflicting reports about the German immigrant to the US Mergenthaler (1845-99) and his invention of an automatic typesetting machine that later became the Linotype, and decided to set the record straight with a biographical appreciation. He particularly narrates the conflicts with the typographers' unions and with his financial backers.
