Caption: Napier's printing machine, historical artwork. The Napier platten machine was an improvement on older block printers. The belt (upper right) was connected to a steam engine. The use of steam power greatly increased the rate at which printing could be done. Artwork taken from History of wonderful inventions, London, 1849.
