Family Herald Masthead

Reproduction of the Family Herald masthead for Vol. 1, No. 1, December 17, 1842. Note the woodcut of the Young & Delcambre Pianotyp typesetting machine in the center. This is reproduced from Brigitte Robak, Vom Pianotyp zur Zeilensetzmaschine. Setzmaschinenentwicklung und Geschlecterverhältnis 1840-1900 (Marburg: Jonas Verlag, 1996) p. 27. As of January 2019 I was unable to find either an original or a digitized copy of the first year of this periodical typeset by the Pianotyp.
