This history of office copying with all its invention and
variation--from typewriters to laser printers--is an invaluable
reference manual. It is a comprehensive history of office technology
throughout the twentieth century, with detailed descriptions of the
copies produced. Companies that made the equipment and copy
products, as well as trade names, copying methods, papers, dyes and
stencils are all covered in this richly illustrated book with more
than 400 images.

Ian Batterham, a Senior Conservator at the National Archives of
Australia, provides expert advice on preserving the many copies that
are the legacy of the revolution in office technology.
