I have sold off most of my antique printing collection and I was contacting you to see if you interested in some ludlow mats, I have around 13 cabinets of mats for sale, the price is scrap value, as this is where they will be going if they don't find a home, as I am trying to raise some funds for some other stuff I have on the go, so I am looking at $45.00 per draw or $550 per full cabinet, from memory I know I have almost the full family of tempo, right up to 90pt, Coronet bold, Formal script, Lining plate, Gothic light, Hauser Script, Eden Bold, Condensed Gothic, Bodoni Bold, Record Gothic, Franklin Gothic, Admiral Script, Bodoni Campanile, Florentine cursive, Cameo, Eusebius Open, Mandate, Times, Bernard Cursive, Bodoni Modern, Flare, Helvitica, Plus heaps more, 13 Cabinets in total. This will only be available on Sunday the 2nd of August, can you email or phone me and let me know what time you may want to come if you do, just so I don't have heaps of people roaming around at the same time.

I will have some other bookbinding stuff available as well. Plus some Ludlow stuff as well.

Hi Milt,

I'm not that familiar with this stuff... are 'mats' the blocks used to cast the type? I.e. a 'negative impression' of the type?

Seems a shame to see this stuff go to scrap, but it looks like that's where a lot of it ends up. Have you considered eBay?

Also, what other bookbinding stuff do you have for sale? I'm looking for some brass type, type holders, hand finishing tools, pallets, wheels etc.

Cheers,

Scott.

Hi Scott,

Yes the Mats I am selling are the small brass moulds if you like, that when you put them together to form words or sentences that you then place in the Holder and inset into a Ludlow machine, a few seconds later it spits out a lead slug with your type set ready to emboss onto paper or cloth, even wood. I even have some Ludlow machines for sale. I hate seeing it go to scrap also, but when you are in need of money and space you have to do something, if I put it on ebay I don't know wether I would get the price I want for them or what I would get for it if it was scrapped. I have brass type holder a few hand tools, I would like some brass fonts too and some more wheels pallets etc, I have some wood type also, to many items to list here, thanks for your email.

Regards
