Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0820481084, Hardcover)

This volume presents for the first time an edited version of Harold D. Woodbury’s "Notes on the History of Woodbury & Company, Inc." This history offers a fascinating glimpse into the workings of a family firm that emerged as the largest commercial engraver in central New England in the 1890s. The company specialized in Bird’s-Eye-Views of factories and industrial buildings, large numbers of which graced the walls of boardrooms and executive suites in the Northeast and throughout North America. A notable success for the company, in addition to its excellence in engraved letterheads, was its series of First Day Covers, pictorial impressions of com-memorative stamps. The introduction to this volume focuses on printing and printing-related businesses in Worcester, Massa-chusetts: their founders, contributions to technological innovation, and contributions to New England’s workforce.
