Lanston Monotype Company

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Lanston Monotype Company was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the end of the nineteenth century by Tolbert Lanston. In 1887 he received his first patent for a mechanical typesetting device. The company's Monotype typesetting machine was a direct competitor for the Linotype typesetting machine.[1] The current[when?] incarnation as the "Lanston Type Co." is a division of P22 type foundry. Around 1899 the company formed a subsidiary in Great Britain called the Lanston Monotype Corporation.[2][3]
