Another Copier Good for Books

The Océ 1925 copier, described by Robert Schnare in a technical note on p. 10 of the January CAN, is good for copying tightly bound books and also for copying old photographic print envelopes (saves copying the information by hand to the new acid-free envelope). Available in the eastern U.S., Europe, Texas & Missouri, and working its way west. Reliable operation, permanent copies, sharp image. Write Océ-Business Systems, Inc., 1351 Washington Blvd., Ste. 5001, Stamford, CT 06904-0030 (203/967-3608). They exhibited at MA Midwinter. Books still have to be copied face down, but there is an edge for them to hang off of, and a shelf to support the part of the book that is not being copied.
