The accompanying engraving represents a vertical high-pressure engine, not occupying much space and adapted for printing or manufacturing purposes.

The engraving is I think signed, Butler & S. Rype. Del., from which I think that Butler was the sculptor (engraver, S.) and Rype drew (delineated) the original picture (Del.).

The machine is labeled “R. Hoe & Co. New York.” and that company was in business making printing equipment from 1805 until 1969; it is now owned by Pacific Saw and Knife Co. but no longer makes printing equipment.
