Most of the advertisements in the copies of the catalogues that were sold at the exhibition concerned printing equipment, reflecting the heavy sponsorship of the exhibition from the printing trades. The press on the left is a single cylinder Wharfdale machine. Copies that were clothbound, of which you see several variants in the illustrations, did not include the advertisements.
