About this deal

The name of their small enterprise—The Charter Stamp Company—means very little today, but their most famous product—the John Bull Printing Outfit —is probably more fondly remembered than the Adana press.

The set contained 120 pieces of 12pt Monotype Gill Sans, although, rather curiously, the accompanying instruction leaflet was set almost entirely in Stephenson Blake’s rival sanserif, Granby. Condition (used): fair for age in fair box (see below) - unsure as to completeness so what you see is what you get, it's definitely missing the leaflet, tongs and some letters but it may have an extra wooden block - the box is a little worn with some minor edge/corner wear, slight bowing, and general grubbiness and marks, the contents are generally fair with ink staining and fairly minor marks commensurate with age and use. the number one single was My Old Man's a Dustman - Lonnie Donegan and the number one album was South Pacific Soundtrack. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places.St Bride Foundation was established in 1891 as the social and educational hub of the printing and publishing industry on Fleet Street. Other uses, including exhibition catalogue and display, broadcast, advertising, book jackets and commercial packaging, are covered by our commercial terms. It's one of those self-inking stamps (where the type is pressed against an ink pad inside and flips over onto the workpiece when you press it down) where the type consists of individual rubber letters/digits. They mention that it looks good, has everything they were looking for, and has an old fashioned look.

The John Bull printing set boxes do all say ‘Made In The British Isles’ and the trade mark was registered in February 1927. From 1940 until his death in 1954 he lived with my mother (his daughter Helen) and my late brother and myself at Meopham, Kent. I seem to remember getting hugely frustrated at having to remember to set the words backwards, and they would ping out of the tweezers while you were trying to push them into the holder.
