The commanding importance of
Printipe is everywhere conceded.
For who does not see what it means
to make the world's vast volume of
typewritten matter as readable as
books and magazines! The Printvue
Oliver Typewriter is equipped with
beautiful Book Type, such as is used
on the world's printing presses.
Printype is distinguished by marvel

That the public is overwhelmingly
in favor of Printvpe is impressively
shown by the fact: Already ovbr 75
per cent of our entire output of Oliver a

in preference to the old-style type.
Within a year, rt the present rate
