DC: Those found in any well-equipped mid-20th-century job shop: Linotypes, foundry type, saw, mitre cutter, strip material, furniture, quoins, chases, Gordon and Heidelberg platens, Kelly and Miehle cylinders, cutters, folders and all the minutiae of letterpress printing.
With a few exceptions, most foundry type and Linotype mats seem to have been acquired in the 1950s.
The titles were set in foundry type, but the bulk of the book was composed by Linotype.
The title and introduction were set in foundry type, and the body text was set by Linotype.
Reports are further broken down by foundry type
, size, geographic location and on an overall basis.
After printing, slugs were melted down so that type metal could be used again, eliminating the need to store tons of foundry type
. Matrices returned by means of a distributing mechanism to their respective channels in the magazine until called into service again.

For this reason, Polk and Polk strongly advised against the mixing of spacing material from Monotype composition with that to be used in hand-setting foundry type

As stated, a crucial factor for success is to have a good cross-sectional base of foundry types
and sizes to get accurate data, which is not skewed.
Annenberg's criteria for inclusion were: (a) case-bound books only -- no pamphlets, except for early ones, and no showings of individual type families; (b) foundry types
only -- no wood type or Monotype; and (c) books issued by foundries only -- no agencies.
