some Monotype books in Europeana that I own (copies of)

As I collect ‘stuff’ (books, documentation, paraphernalia) about mechanical typesetting machines, I don’t realise all the time that some of these are now considered cultural heritage.
But of course they should be. Here are some examples of books on Monotype machines that are now in museum collections, and on my bookshelf at home 🙂
(Note 2/12/2010: I double checked last night, and of the first two books I have the Dutch translation, not the English original. Possibly even rarer 😉 )
THE 'MONOTYPE' KEYBOARD OPERATOR'S MANUAL
THE 'MONOTYPE' CASTING MACHINE MANUAL

This one is particularly nice: a type specimen book of all the typefaces that Monotype supplied matrices for:
