    A printing press, which belongs to Mr Harry Macintosh of Speedspools, 7 Gayfield Place Lane Edinburgh, has a platen size of 20 x 27 inches, and is unlike anything in Moran, or elsewhere in the literature. The staple is heavy and of a rounded square shape, in cast iron with decorative thistles, and the words 'PATRICK RITCHIE / EDINBURGH' in raised letters at the top. These are gilded. A cross member is cast across the staple to take the bar. The platen is held suspended by two leaf springs below the bar, fastened through the staple and impression is made by a knuckle joint which is straightened by means of a bar and a number of levers, resembling those of a Columbian. The impression is adjusted by means of a wheel on top of the press working through the staple. There is nothing remarkable about the rounce or the bed of the press, and the legs are sturdy but quite unornamented. The firm is quite distinct from that of Ritchie & Sons, pressmakers, Edinburgh, who are listed under Robert Ritchie & Sons.
