Chandler & Price Press Finds New Home With an Unlikely Mate
This is the new press for Robin Press Studio.
This Chandler & Price is from 1889 and is 112 years old.
My sister, Carey, has dubbed him Johnny Tremain.
He needs a little cleaning up, new rollers and a treadle.
In the novel Johnny Tremain, it concludes
on a note of hopefulness for the future.
Although the beginning of the war
has wrought great death and destruction,
American Patriots have defeated the
British army and surrounded Boston,
a doctor will have mended Johnny's hand,
and Cilla and Johnny have exchanged their first kiss.
Johnny recieved a nod from the older(?) printer
Obie - the Epson 9900 I purchased last year.
I think they will be fine mates and
am eager for them to play together.
Obie is the artificial intelligence with the ability to alter local regions of reality, in Jack L. Chalker's Well World series (1977)
Time to get to work!
