IT combines the advantage of the Stanhope forn with the fullest power that belongs to any Press now in use; it is so easily worked that a boy of fourteen years of age can bring off the heaviest impression ; and being made of wrought Iron, it is secure from breaking by the exercise of its utmost power.

In aildition to these advantages, its cheapness will secure a preference.

The Press being put together from several separate pieces, is very portable and of easy con. veyance; accurate directions are sent for the erection of them.

Mr. Hope has recently effected an important improvement at the head of the Press, by which the workman is enabled to regulate the power with the greatest facility.
