In 1902 printing press manufacturer Robert Hoe privately published an illustrated review of printing press advances from the time of Gutenberg to the end of the 19th century. His 91 page book was entitled A Short History of the Printing Press and of the Improvements in Printing Machinery from the Time of Gutenberg Up to the Present Day. Because nearly all the advances in printing presses occurred during the 19th century from the invention of the iron Stanhope Press onwards, most of Hoe's book concerned that period. R. Hoe & Co., the company that Robert Hoe owned, began producing printing machines in the 1820s, and by the mid-19th century became the leading American inventor and manufacturer of printing machines of all sizes—specializing in the largest and fastest machines for newspaper production.
